Were you looking for information about Acromegaly? Acromeglia is a common misspelling of acromegaly.
Acromegaly is a hormonal disease that is typically caused by certain types of tumors. This hormonal disorder results when the pituitary gland produces too much growth hormone. As a result, acromegaly can cause an abnormal growth in the hands and feet. Other possible symptoms include fatigue, impaired vision, and impotence. In many cases, acromegaly can be treated with surgery, medications, or radiation therapy of the pituitary gland.
