Sample text

Its relationship to the NV bundle is similar to that of the spiral band. It takes origin from the ADM tendon, but it may also arise from the nearby muscle fascia or base of the proximal phalanx. The cord courses superficial to the NV bundle and infrequently entraps and displaces it toward the midline. The cord inserts frequently on the ulnar side of the base of the middle phalanx. The cord however may attach radially or may have additional insertion in the base of the distal phalanx causing DIP joint contracture.

Eaton et al. 2 H. Millesi Pathology Pathologists classify DD as a fibromatosis: it starts with a proliferation of fibroblasts which produce collagen and ends with cords consisting of nonstructured masses of collagen. Although this classification is reasonable, the term fibromatosis does not tell the whole story. Other diseases classified as fibromatosis such as keloid, juvenile fibroma, or desmoid tumor do not have much in common with DD. 3 Anatomy It was an important step to recognize that the disease is at the level of the palmar aponeurosis and not in the flexor tendons.

Sometimes cord maturation continues without nodule regression. Normal bands are the precursors of pathologic cords (McFarlane 1974). Early cords can be adherent to the skin and blend with the nodule making it difficult to ascertain where the nodule ends and the cord begins. The cord later becomes prominent and acquires the appearance and consistency of a tendon. Cords are located in the palm, palmodigital area or digits. Histologically, the mature cord has few cells, minimal myofibroblasts, and abundance of collagen issue.
