Background: Because of prolong exposure to elevated endogenous growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) levels in acromegaly, it is resulted in multipl comorbidities such as somatic growth, hypertension, diabetes and sleep apnea. Systemic complications caused by acromegaly include gastrointestinal (GIS) involvement. In our study it was planned to evaluate the upper GIS findings by using endoscopic and ultrasonographic methods in acromegaly patients.<p cla...
