Dupuytren's contracture also called Viking’s disease, is a condition where one or more fingers become permanently bent in a flexed position. It usually begins as small, hard bumps just under the skin of the palm, and over time extends towards the fingers then worsens until the fingers can no longer be straightened. Generally, it is more of a nuisance and not painful although some aching or itching may be present. The condition can cause significant interference with many aspects of life that require hand flexibility and finger dexterity.
Dupuytren’s most commonly effects males over the age of 50. It is referred to as "Viking disease," because it is most common among white males of Nordic descent, although it is also widespread in some Mediterranean countries like Bosnia and Spain. In the United States, about 5% of men over 50 are affected at some point, in Norway, 30% of men over 60 years old have the disease and in the UK 20% of people over 65 have some form of the dupuytrens disease.
