Thanks to treatment by researchers at the University of Virginia Medical Center, the world's tallest man may have reached his peak.
Measuring in at 8-feet-3 inches, Sultan Kosen of Turkey is listed in the 2011 Guinness World Records at the tallest living man.
Kosen visited U.Va. in May 2010 for treatment for a disorder called acromegaly, which is usually caused by a tumor in the pituitary gland.
Reports that Kosen was placed on a new medication that could potentially help control the production of growth hormone and stop his continued growth.
According to U.Va. officials, doctors in Turkey say Kosen has stopped growing.
