In this report we emphasize the opportunity of considering the uncommon causes of chronic GH-excess in the initial diagnostic process, such as GHRH hypersecretion, especially in the presence of ambiguous pituitary neuroimaging. This topic may have an important clinical significance in order to plan the most cost-effective diagnostic procedures and management and to avoid unnecessary pituitary neurosurgery.
