Peyronie’s Disease a Concern for Men with Dupuytren’s Contracture

Peyronie’s Disease a Concern for Men with Dupuytren’s Contracture

A recent Sexual Medicine study found that men with Dupuytren’s contracture may be at risk of developing Peyronie’s disease.

Dupuytren’s contracture is a connective tissue disorder in which areas of hardened scar tissue form on the hand, making the fingers curl. Some people with Dupuytren’s contracture are unable to fully straighten their fingers.

Peyronie’s disease also leads to a type of curling, but instead of the hands, it affects the penis. Hardened areas called plaques form just beneath the skin, making the penis less flexible. As a result, it bends when erect. Many men with Peyronie’s disease have pain and problems with erections. Sometimes, the curvature is so severe that they are unable to have intercourse.
