What is Dupuytren's disease?
In Dupuytren's (say "duh-pwee-TRAHNZ") disease, tissue under the skin in the palm of your hand, called the palmar fascia, gets thicker and shorter. This can cause your fingers to bend in toward your palm. It most often affects the ring and small fingers, usually of both hands.
The disease may only involve the palm and never affect your fingers. If it gets worse, it may be hard to use your hands.
Dupuytren's disease is also called Viking's disease.
Thickening and tightening of the tissue beneath the palm’s skin & fingers is called Dupuytrens disease. A painless condition, beginning as a bump.
