Why do fingers automatically curl?

Dupuytren's contracture is a condition that causes thick, tough tissue to form under the skin of the palm. The thickened, shortened tissue eventually forces some of the fingers to curl inward toward the palm, creating a hand deformity.

Should fingers curl at rest?

With all the joints in your fingers and toes, they have to be relatively tighter to prevent injury. And the way they attach to the tissues in your hands makes them act like a strong elastic - and that is what keeps your fingers relatively curled up, even at rest.

What is Dupuytren's syndrome?

Dupuytren's contracture (also called Dupuytren's disease) is an abnormal thickening of the skin in the palm of your hand at the base of your fingers. This thickened area may develop into a hard lump or thick band. Over time, it can cause one or more fingers to curl (contract), or pull sideways or in toward your palm.

What does Dupuytren disease look like?

The condition usually begins as a thickening of the skin on the palm of your hand. As it progresses, the skin on your palm might appear puckered or dimpled. A firm lump of tissue can form on your palm. This lump might be sensitive to the touch but usually isn't painful.

What is Ledderhose disease?

What is Dupuytren's Fasciectomy?

Fasciectomy (say "fash-ee-EK-tuh-mee") is surgery to cut out a layer of tissue called the fascia (say "FASH-ee-uh") that lies deep under the skin. In Dupuytren's (say "duh-pwee-TRAHNZ") contracture, the fascia of the palm of the hand becomes thick and tight.
