Acromegaly Masquerading as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome


Renner, Matthew MD., et al. ? This case describes a growth hormone-prolactin, cosecreting pituitary microadenoma that presented with chronic, hyperandrogenic anovulation. A 37-year-old parous patient presented with 1 year of irregular cycles unresponsive to clomiphene citrate and a mildly elevated prolactin. Laboratory evaluation demonstrated hyperprolactinemia with an elevated, age-adjusted, insulin-like growth factor-1 level, and nonsuppressed growth hormone following glucose loading
