Heterotopic ossification in Dupuytren's disease: clinical and histological significance.
Sadideen H., Athanasou N., Ashmore A., McNab I.
We report the case of an 82-year-old man who underwent fasciectomy for a severe Dupuytren's contracture, during which an ossified lesion was encountered within the contracture and surrounding the neurovascular bundle. The abnormal tissue was removed with difficulty and heterotopic ossification was confirmed histologically. We believe this is the first report of heterotopic ossification in Dupuytren's disease.
