Caption: The hands of a person suffering from Dupuytren's contracture, the forward curvature of one or more fingers due to the fixation of the flexor tendon of the affected finger to the skin of the palm. Here, the hand at left is particularly affected. The condition is caused by the formation of fibrous bands joining the tendon and skin. Dupuytren's contracture usually affects the third and fourth fingers, but sometimes involves the other fingers and, occasionally, the toes. The cause is unknown, but it may be an inherited disorder. Treatment is by surgical division of the thickened, fibrous tissue to release the tendons.
