Abstract
A newly obtained photograph of Pio Pico c.1873 appears to demonstrate that virtually all signs of his previous acromegaly have disappeared suggesting that his pituitary tumor had already regressed by this date. This new information implies that his tumor likely infarcted between 1858 and 1873 instead of the much later date, about 1890. Thus, Pio Pico may have been the biological father of the two boys, Ranulfo Romero born 1862 and Alfredo Romero born 1871.
