D
Gigantism

Solution

The correct option is
The growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) is produced in the hypothalamus. The main role of the GHRH is to stimulate the pituitary to produce growth hormone (GH). An increase in growth hormone before children reach their final height can lead to excessive growth of long bones, resulting in the child being abnormally tall. This is commonly known as gigantism. The deficiency of GH in childhood results in dwarfism. If oversecretion of GH occurs in adults then it leads to a condition called acromegaly.
