Özet

The diagnosis of acromegaly requires a glucose-suppressed growth hormone (GH) nadir greater than 1 mu g/l associated with clinical symptoms and signs. Here, we present a patient who has acromegalic clinical findings associated with a nadir GH level < 1 mu g/l during an oral glucose tolerance test.
