Dupuytren’s disease is a disorder of the palmar fascia of the hand. The palmar fascia is the connective tissue lying under the skin in the palm and the fingers. The condition may vary from small lumps, or bands, to very thick bands that cause the fingers to curl into the palm of the hand. Typically the little and ring fingers are the most commonly affected but it can also affect the thumb.
