Incidental Growth Hormone Producing Pituitary Adenoma in a Case of Recurrent Nodular Goiter and Thyroid Carcinoma

Several studies have reported on the high prevalence of goitrous disorders and increased rates of thyroid malignancy among patients with acromegaly. In most studies, patients were only included in cancer estimates if they presented with acromegaly and were then found to have a malignancy. However, clinical features of acromegaly are nonspecific and similar to other disorders, thus the prevalence is possibly greater than previously thought. In this report, we aim to raise awareness of the presence of subtle or undiagnosed acromegaly among patients assessed for thyroid neoplasia.
