Has either simvastatin or lisinopril been implicated?

I started noticing Dupuytren's in both hands several months after starting simvastatin and lisinopril. I have heard that statins (including simvastatin) can be "toxic to connective tissue."

Statins can damage muscle tissue not connective tissue. Mechanism is undrestood and wouldn't apply to Dupuytren's
