Dupuytren's disease may extend beyond the wrist crease in continuity.
J Bone Joint Surg Br. 1997 Mar; 79(2):211-2.JB

Abstract

Debate continues about the origin of Dupuytren's disease, which is usually in the palm but is seen elsewhere as ectopic lesions. We describe a young patient with Dupuytren's disease extending proximal to the wrist crease in continuity with the palmar lesion. Our findings support the view that the condition starts within the palmar connective tissue, but there is no palmar aponeurosis in the forearm and the proximal extension probably started in the deep layer of the superficial fascia.
