Acromegaly is an acquired disorder related to excessive production of growth hormone after epiphyseal closure of bones. It is characterized by progressive somatic disfigurement (mainly involving the face and extremities) and systemic manifestations. The prevalence is estimated at 1:140,000-250,000. Although acromegaly rarely manifests in the orofacial regions, it must be considered in patients who develop malocclusion after adolescence. Here, we present a case of acromegaly with brief review of the literature.
