Greetings doctor … want to ask … want to ask about acromegaly … for example If my skull enlarges faster than other limbs is there any acromegaly? … 2) And is there if the head we enlarge all the adjacent members enlarge together like ears, teeth and eyes ….
Hello Shakichigo, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Acromegaly is a condition where there is excessive production of growth hormone (GH-growth hormone) from the pituitary gland in the brain. The main characteristic of acromegaly is actually not an enlarged skull, but rather on the enlarged hands and feet. Other signs and symptoms that can be found include:
facial shape changes (enlarged jaw, increasingly prominent eyebrows, enlarged nose, thickened lips, widening gap between teeth)
skin changes become more rough, thick, and oily
increased amount of sweat and body odor
muscle weakness and feeling tired quickly
the sound changes deeper
tongue enlargement and snoring tightly
menstrual disorders in women and erectile disorders in men
enlargement of internal organs
enlarged chest circumference (barrel chest)
Basically the skull bones will not enlarge again as an adult. If indeed the proportion of your head looks bigger than your body (or called macrosefali), then the possibility of enlargement of your skull has occurred since you were a baby. The causes can vary, including heredity (does have a family with a larger head size), certain genetic diseases (usually a syndrome), certain metabolic disorders, hydrocephalus, bleeding in the brain, brain tumors, certain infections during pregnancy, etc. .
If what you really mean is enlargement of the skull, then it is likely that the condition you have is not acromegaly. Further evaluation must be carried out to find the cause. If you feel no symptoms other than a proportion of head size that is bigger than your body, chances are your big head is only caused by hereditary conditions (Benign familial macrocephaly). But if you feel other symptoms, you should consult your doctor of internal medicine or pediatrician (if you are currently under 18 years old).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
