Dupuytren's contracture is a flexion contracture of the palmar fascia of the hand due to palmar fibromatosis, in which the fingers bend towards the palm (and can't be straightened fully). It is an inherited proliferative connective tissue disorder that involves the palmar fascia. It is named after Baron Guillaume Duypuytren, the surgeon who described an operation to correct it.
