A triplet pregnancy is reported in an acromegalic woman with hypothalamic amenorrhoea treated with pulsatile gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH). The patient was on bromocriptine medication and had slightly elevated growth hormone (GH) and somatomedin-C (Sm-C) levels. This probably accounted for the conception of triplets in the first stimulation cycle.
