Abstract

The article is devoted to the study of anthropometric parameters of the human skeleton, which during life suffered from acromegaly, a disease that is manifested by excessive growth of bones, soft tissues and internal organs.  According to archival data of the Department of Human Anatomy of the Bogomolets National Medical University, the skeleton belongs to the Ukrainian heavyweight Isot Rudenko. Based on the conducted research, information is provided on the physical portrait of this person, thus confirming the archival data.
