What is the condition that is caused by increased secretion of growth hormone during childhood in which a person reaches an abnormal stature?
Gigantism. Condition is generally caused by a tumour in pituitary gland; affected individuals grow 7 to 9 feet tall.
It's a condition caused by over-production of growth hormone i.e Somatotrophin
It causes abnormal increase in height and sometimes abnormal growth of different parts of body i.e hands, feet, jaws etc...
Hope it helps...
