Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Respiratory disorders are common and important complications in acromegaly. The prevalence of sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) in this group of patients is high (20%-50%). Consequences of SAS are serious and associated with increased morbidity and mortality, mainly as a result of cardiovascular complications. The symptoms of sleep apnea are often reversible with treatment. We report on an acromegaly patient presenting with excessive snoring and severe headaches caused by sleep apnea.
