Dupuytren’s contracture – the disease represents thickening and shortening of the palmar fascia (aponeurosis). The clinical picture is typical and easily recognizable. The area of the hand looks like a thick rope, and the pain and flexion contracture of the finger (the impossibility of correction), usually the fourth and sometimes the fifth one are characteristic. In this thick skin wrinkle, the nodes can be noticed. Contracture of the finger first occurs in the metacarpophalangeal, and then in the interphalangeal joint. In the very beginning, the skin ripples over the affected area, and later it can grow together with a fascia (or aponeurosis) below it, so that the flexion contracture of the fingers occurs, because the tendons and envelopes in this disease have not changed.
