Incident rate of later development of cords and nodules on other hand with disease progression

Greetings! I was diagnosed with Dupuytren's Disease approximately 3 years ago after observing a raised cord and nodule by my ring finger on my left palm for approximately 2 years prior. Three months ago, I noticed that a nodule had developed in the same spot on my right hand. The lump / nodule on my right palm is already nearly as pronounced as the one on my left hand. However, the raised cord on my right hand is about half the degree of the raised cord on my left hand.

I have been unable to find research online regarding whether the development of the disease in another hand / palm within a few years increases the overall rate of the disease progressing to the curled / bent fingers level. Is anyone aware of such a correlation?

Hi Annie

I have not myself come across such a correlation. There are papers that state 40-50% of cases are bilateral but this does not appear to indicate diathesis which is one of the usual indicators that ongoing progression will lead to contracture. The other usual statistic that gets thrown around is that approx 80% do not get contracture anyway.

Best wishes SB

Hi Spanish Buddha,
This is a relief to hear! Thank you for sharing this research. I hope to be one of the lucky 80% that will not progress to contractures.
