Knuckle Pads (Garrod’s Nodules) of the Fingers: Painful Dorsal Nodules on the PIP Joints of the Fingers and Concomitant Recurrent Dupuytren’s Contracture
A 48-year-old male presented himself in my office with painful dorsal nodules on his fingers in association with a recurrent Dupuytren’s contracture of his small finger of his right dominant hand. Prior, he underwent surgery with open selective fasciectomy 4 years ago for his right small finger due to Dupuytren’s contracture. However, Dupuytren’s contracture recurred within 18 months following conventional open surgery as limited fasciectomy. He had a positive family history for Dupuytren’s contracture. Regarding knuckle pads in his family history, the patient was not quite sure about.
