N A Merah, C I Okeke, A C Obikudu


The anaesthetic management of patients with acromegaly, a rare clinical syndrome, for urgent non pituitary surgery has little documentation in the literature. We report such a case further complicated by dilated cardiomyopathy. The anaethetic challenges in the face of limited resources are highlighted.

Keywords: Acromegaly, dilated cardiomyopathy, non-pituitary surgery, emergency
