Pachydermoperiostosis maybe mistaken for acromegaly as it can present with progressive enlargement of hands and feet.

X ray imaging showed normal heel pad thickness with acroosteolysis and subperiosteal new bone formation in hands and feet.IGF-1 was normal and glucose suppressed GH values were normal.
