Rodrigues JN., Becker GW., Ball C., Zhang W., Giele H., Hobby J., Pratt AL., Davis T.
Dupuytren's disease is a benign fibroproliferative disorder that causes the fingers to be drawn into the palm via formation of new tissue under the glabrous skin of the hand. This disorder causes functional limitations, but it can be treated through a variety of surgical techniques. As a chronic condition, it tends to recur.
