Dupuytren's Contracture Directory

In Dupuytren's contracture, the connective tissue in your palm restricts and thickens to the point that it affects your finger movement. Usually, your ring finger and pinky finger curl in. When this happens, even the simplest tasks can prove difficult. Symptoms include nodules of hard tissue in the palm, curling in of the fingers, and more. Treatments may include corticosteroid injections, surgery, physical therapy, and more. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about what causes Dupuytren's contracture, what the condition looks like, how to treat it, and much more.
