Dupuytren’s contracture

Dupuytren’s contracture (also known as palmar fibromatosis) is a common benign condition that forms hard nodules in the palmar fascia just beneath the skin of the palm of the hand, commonly affecting the ring or little finger. They can extend to form cords that cause your fingers to pull into a bent position.
This is a familial condition and whilst you may not be cured of the tendency to form contracture, the nodules and bands of tissue can be excised or released to allow restoration of function.
