Once contracture has occurred, the affected finger often interferes with a person’s ability to carry out everyday tasks such as driving, face washing, dressing or shaking hands.For some people, Dupuytren’s contracture can develop in more than one finger – the ring and little fingers are most commonly affected by the disease.1 Dupuytren’s disease is also bilateral, meaning it can affect either hand, or in some cases both hands.1
