Dupuytren's Contracture was first described by the Parisian surgeon, doctor Guillaume Dupuytren. This disease is characterized by the formation of hard bumps on hand palms. These bumps can develop as strings that force the fingers in flexion( contracture). The ring finger and the little finger are affected the most. The disease occurs frequently on both hands.                                                                   Today Needle Aponeurotomy is considered as the first treatment for Dupuytren's Contracture.
