Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate central corneal thickness (CCT) and intraocular pressure (IOP) in a cohort of acromegalic patients, and to correlate CCT with serum levels of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). Methods: Consecutive patients affected by acromegaly underwent a comprehensive endocrinological and ophthalmological evaluation, including serum GH and IGF-1 levels, CCT measured with ultrasonic pachymetry and IOP assessed with Goldmann applanation tonometry. Results: Fourteen patients with acromegaly and 28 healthy controls were included in the study. Acromegalic patients had a statistically higher median CCT (570 μm [range 551.5-638] vs 542.7 μm [range 461.5-610]; p
