Caption: Dupuytren's contracture in the hand of an 85-year-old man. This condition causes one or more fingers to become fixed in a bent position. Dupuytren's contracture occurs when tissue in the palm of the hand thickens and shortens, preventing the tendons attached to the fingers from moving freely. Surgery attempts to free the tendons, but does not always work. In this case, the contracted fingers were so tight the nails were digging into the palm of the hands and the nails could not be cut properly. Surgery was carried out to free the tendons.
