Acromegaly occurs in adulthood, when the long bones of the legs and arms have stopped growing. Gigantism occurs in childhood. People affected by gigantism can grow to great heights. One of the best-known examples is "Andre the Giant" (Andre Rousimoff), who was 6 feet 3 inches by age 12, and reached a height of 8 feet 4 inches in adulthood. Men and women are equally affected by acromegaly.</p></li></ul>
