Peyronie's disease (PD) is known to be associated with Dupuytren's disease (DD) since 1828. The aim of this study was to investigate the coexistence of DD in a consecutive series of patients with PD and their clinical characteristics. From January 1988 to December 2009 all patients, presenting at our outpatient urological clinic, with PD were also examined for DD. The sample consisted of 415 male subjects with PD, 89 (22.1%) also had DD. A total of 28 men (6.7%) reported to have one or more first or second degree relatives with DD.
