Dupuytren contracture after acute traumatic hand injury in an adolescent: A case report

Jt Dis Relat Surg. 2023 Aug 21;34(3):737-740. doi: 10.52312/jdrs.2023.1168.


Dupuytren's disease is a fibroproliferative disease that affects the palmar hand, causing progressive, permanent, and symptomatic flexion contracture of the digits. It is a disorder of polygenetic and multifactorial origin, usually affecting middle-aged males. Dupuytren's disease developing as a result of hand trauma in younger ages is rarely reported. In this case, we present a 14-year-old male patient with Dupuytren's disease following acute traumatic injury. We performed the fasciectomy and Z-plasty with full thickness skin graft. He recovered completely additional injection of triamcinolone for one year.
