About these proceedings

Introduction

Acromegaly is a relatively rare chronic disease. Nevertheless, it is life-threatening in its sequelae, for example, hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Since it also has disfiguring properties - especially of the head and face - acromegaly has serious psychological consequences which are reinforced by the awareness of factors such as excessive sweating. It is precisely on these signs and symptoms that Sandostatin R has a rapid effect, thus improving the patient's quality of life as well as counteracting the underlying processes. SandostatinÊ
