Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The Acromegaly Consensus Group reconvened in November 2007 to update guidelines for acromegaly management.

PARTICIPANTS:

The meeting participants comprised 68 pituitary specialists, including neurosurgeons and endocrinologists with extensive experience treating patients with acromegaly. EVIDENCE/CONSENSUS PROCESS: Goals of treatment and the appropriate imaging and biochemical and clinical monitoring of patients with acromegaly were enunciated, based on the available published evidence.

CONCLUSIONS:

The group developed a consensus on the approach to managing acromegaly including appropriate roles for neurosurgery, medical therapy, and radiation therapy in the management of these patients.
