Richard Mbuva, James Kigera, Michael Maru, Tom Mogire, Ezekiel Oburu

Abstract


Dupuytren’s disease is not common in the African population. Like in other populations early intervention before severe contractures is important in order to prevent recurrence. We present a case of a young African with Dupuytren’s diathesis.

Keywords: Dupuytren’s, Diathesis, African, Surgery
