AIM: The deletion polymorphism of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) genome causes neoplastic development in several organs by increasing the angiotensin 2 (A2) formation. In this study, we aimed to identify the ACE genome insertion/deletion polymorphism in pituitary adenomas and to compare it with the control group.
