What is Dupuytren's disease?
Dupuytren's disease is a condition in which connective tissue strands form under the skin of your palm and fingers. Connective tissue is all over your body. It usually ensures that different structures, such as your bones, blood vessels and tendons, are kept in the right place. In your hand is connective tissue as a layer between the skin of your palm and the underlying blood vessels and tendons.


In Dupuytren's disease, the connective tissue in your palm thickens and it
grows. In the places where the connective tissue is thickened, you will feel lumps or strands in or under your skin. These nodules and strands shrivel over time, causing your fingers or thumb to become more curved. This can ultimately prevent you from stretching your fingers. This is called claw hands.

 

Dupuytren's disease was first described in 1831 and treated with surgery by Baron Guillaume Dupuytren in Paris. The disease is named after him.
 



















What causes Dupuytren's disease?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is not known why the connective tissue of Dupuytren's disease grows and thickens. However, we do know that the condition is more common in certain families. In one in four patients, someone else in the family also appears to suffer from Dupuytren's disease. Dupuytren has not been proven to be an inherited disease. However, environmental factors (e.g. smoking and excessive alcohol consumption), other diseases (e.g. diabetes mellitus and epilepsy) and earlier hand trauma can 'incite' the disease. Dupuytren's disease is more common in men. Men are eight times more likely to get the disease than in women. Because the cause of Dupuytren is not known, the symptoms may recur and you may need to be treated again over time.
What are the symptoms of Dupuytren's disease?


The first signs of Dupuytren's disease are harmless: a lump, slight hardening or a withdrawal of the skin in your palm. In the beginning there are few complaints. The strand formation allows one or more fingers to gradually become more curved, limiting the movement of your fingers. This causes complaints such as clumsiness, bumping your fingers or hand, difficulty grabbing and/or shaking hands or putting on a load on your gloves. Other possible symptoms include pain or a tight feeling in the palm of the hand.
 

When is treatment
needed?
Dupuytren's disease is a benign condition. If you have no symptoms, treatment is not needed immediately. If you suffer from a lot of curvature, for example during your work, with hobbies or in your daily life, this can be a reason for treatment. Also, pain complaints or a tight feeling in your hand can be a reason for treatment. We do advise you not to wait too long. At the initial stage, less invasive treatments are possible, later sometimes no longer.

Did you know that...


... this phenomenon among other names also occurs in other places in the body? In the foot (sole) we call this the disease of Ledderhosis and in the penis the disease of Peyronie.
... about half of the patients have Dupuytren disease on both hands?
... the disease is usually diagnosed in people between 40 and 60 years?
... the condition in exceptional cases before the age of 40? Often these patients have a rapid course of the disease, a rapid enlargement and a high chance of recurrient symptoms after treatment.
