Contracture of palmar fascia

Dupuytren contracture is the most common heritable disorder of connective tissue. It is a disease of the soft tissues of the palm and fingers characterized by a progressive thickening and shortening of the fascial structures that normally provide support to the glabrous skin of the palm. Although it can also be a sporadic disorder, the inherited form is most frequently observed among people of Nordic descent. There is a male: female ratio of greater than 3:1 (Hu et al., 2005). Dupuytren contracture has been associated with multiple fibroproliferative conditions, including Peyronie disease (171000), knuckle pads (149100), congenital generalized fibromatosis (228550), juvenile fibromatosis (228600), and frozen shoulder, suggesting a common underlying defect in wound repair (Hu et al., 2005). [from OMIM]
