Abstract

The case of a 32-year-old woman at 29 weeks gestational age with acromegaly initially diagnosed in pregnancy is presented. During follow-up at 34 weeks of gestation, concomitant emergency cesarean section and transsphenoidal surgery were performed because of advancing vision loss. In tertiary centers, success in pregnancy can be made possible for a patient with acromegaly under the constant supervision of an obstetrician and neurosurgeon.
