Dupuytren's disease in a child: a case report.

Author information

Department of Trauma and Orthopaedics, Princess Margaret Hospital, Swindon, Wiltshire, UK.


Dupuytren's disease commonly affects men over the age of 40 years. It is very rare to find it in the paediatric age group. We describe a case of histologically proven Dupuytren's disease in a 10-year-old boy who presented with a nodule in his palm. Dupuytren's disease should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a nodule in hand or contracture of a finger joint in the paediatric age group.
