Dupuytren’s disease is a clinical entity originally described over 400 years ago. Despite more than a century since its description by the physician Guillaume Dupuytren (1831), currently many jobs related to this disease, and assessing the multiple risk factors that exist to have this condition are performed. Find predisposing cause, or trigger the development of the disease is still unknown.
Dupuytren’s disease is a progressive, genetic disease. Fibroproliferative disorder involves shortening and thickening of the palmar fascia, leading to contracture of permanent and irreversible bending of the digits.
