"Claw Hand" aka Dupuytren's in the Daily Mail

My e-mail alert pinged off last night to inform me that today there is an article in the Daily Mail that mentions Dupuytren's.

The article can be found HERE.

They are actually discussing varioues disease of the hand but it is good to see that Dupuytren's makes it onto the list, now just need to get them to do a foot version and include Ledderhose disease.

Dupuytren's is more common than Ledderhose and occurs in the hands rather than the feet. The nodules in the hand are often associated with cords, these cords can cause the fingers of the hand to contract. To see more information about this please visit:
