Gigantism is a growth condition involving the pituitary gland. It is characterized by an overproduction of human growth hormone, resulting in an extremely tall height during adolescence, usually between 7 and 8 feet. It is related to the ptuitary disease acromegaly, which is similar, but doesn't increase the height. The usual cause of the HgH overproduction is a pituitary tumor.
