To the Editor:—
I have just read Dr. Starr's article "Gynecomastia During Hyperthyroidism" in The Journal, June 1, page 1988, and noted the rareness with which this condition has been observed. It may be of interest that I have recently observed a case of bilateral, symmetrical hypertrophy of the mammary glands in a man, aged 35, with classic exophthalmic goiter, the hypertrophy of the glands having been noticed for two months, while the subjective symptoms of hyperthyroidism had been noticed for nine months. Following operative treatment for the goiter, along with improvement of his other symptoms, the enlargement of the mammary glands receded to normal.
