Dupuytren's Contracture Remedies

What Is Dupuytren's Contracture?

A deformity of the hand, Dupuytren's contracture typically develops slowly and progresses over several years. The condition affects the underlying tissue in the skin in the palm, causing knots of tissue to develop. Over time, the knots form into a thick cord that pulls one or more of the fingers into a folded or bent position.

The development of Dupuytren contracture and its symptoms generally takes place over several years; however, it can vary. Some cases develop over a few months or even weeks, and in some affected individuals development of the condition begins and ends intermittently. The condition often presents as a thickening of the skin in the palm at onset. In addition, the skin may appear puckered or dimpled. As the condition progresses, a firm lump of tissue often forms in the palm of the hand that may become sensitive to the touch. Over time and with further progression of the condition, cords of tissue form beneath the skin and extend toward the fingers. As the cords begin to tighten, the fingers pull in toward the palm.
