Dupuytren Disease, also known as Dupuytren's contracture, is a condition that gradually causes connective tissue (fascia) under the skin of the palm to thicken and become scar-like. Although Dupuytren's isn't painful, it does restrict movement. The thickened tissue forces several fingers - usually the ring and pinky fingers - to curl in toward the palm.
This condition is chronic, and may get worse over time, eventually requiring treatment.
- Top Symptoms:
- finger joint stiffness, hand bump, thickened skin on the finger, swollen hands, hand injury
