We report a case of global heart failure revealing aortic regurgitation in a 50-year-old male with acromegalic dysmorphism. The echocardiography noted a hypertrophy and dilatation of left ventricular and severe aortic regurgitation. A large pituitary adenoma was visualized using magnetic resonance imaging. Growth hormone was high.
