Sometimes, otherwise it can stop your growing depending on the type.

The Simian Line

The pituitary gland is responsible for growth hormone production while you sleep, among other things. People with pituitary disorder have ‘acromegaly’, or produce too much growth hormone, causing them to grow extremely tall.

Dr Frank

Basically because the gland secretes GH growth hormone. The usual problem that leads to gigantism, if it occurs while you are still growing, or acromegaly, if it occurs in later life, is a pituitary tumour called an adenoma.

Susan Yarrawonga

If the pituitary gland releases too little or too much HGH you can grow into a dwarf or midget or a giant.
You can find futher information in a web search for gigantism + “pituitary gland”.
