Gigantism is a medical condition that is characterized by the abnormal growth and height above the average which happens due to uncontrolled over-production of growth hormone in childhood. Although a rare condition, it can occur due to tumour formation in the pituitary gland. The increased level of growth hormone occurs before the fusion of growth plate that is the period soon after reaching puberty. It sometimes has been associated with mutations and is usually diagnosed with elevated growth hormone level in any random blood sample test. Although various treatment procedures including medications and surgery are used to treat gigantism, none of them are proved ideal for the same.
