Clinical involvement of the palmar and digital skin by Dupuytren's disease occurs frequently. A review of 40 rays in 32 patients who had consecutively undergone dermofasciectomy is presented. The average follow-up period was 38 months, with a minimum of 24 months. Four out of the 40 rays developed recurrent nodule formation limited to the proximal or distal graft insets but there was no recurrent cord formation, suggesting better disease control than by fasciectomy alone. Full thickness graft to resurface the defect has been surprisingly complication-free.
