Double Spiral Dupuytren's Disease: Case of Ulnar and Radial Spiral Cords in Shared Digit.
Dupuytren's disease is a benign fibroproliferative disorder resulting in progressive contraction of palmar and digital fascia. Diseased fascia of the hand condenses into tensile cords, manifesting in various anatomical combinations. The spiral cord variant is especially troublesome, as the cord travels under the digital neurovascular bundle and places it at risk during surgical resection. In severe cases, limited fasciectomy is required to release contracture and restore finger extension.
