The prevalence of acromegaly is approximately 60 cases per million population, and the incidence is 3.3 new cases per million per year. The name "acromegaly" comes from the Greek words for "extremities" (acro) and "great" (megaly), because one of the most common symptoms of this condition is abnormal growth of the hands and feet.
