Dupuytren’s contracture

Have you noticed unusual lumps or bands of tissue under the skin in the palms of your hands? Have your fingers developed a “bend” or started to curl forward toward your wrist? If so, it is possible that you are developing a condition called Dupuytren’s contracture. While the specific cause is unknown, Dupuytren’s contracture, also known as Dupuytren’s disease, is a condition that develops in the palm’s connective tissue, or fascia. The tendons are not affected, and injuries and overuse of the hand are not causes. Dupuytren’s contracture is thought to be related to biochemical factors, and the following are likely contributors:

  • Genetics
  • Diabetes
  • Seizures
  • Heavy alcohol consumption
  • Smoking
