Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Pachydermodactyly is a rare form of digital fibromatosis that is characterized by acquired, asymptomatic, protracted connective tissue swellings on the back and sides of a few proximal phalanges or proximal interphalangeal joints. This is the tenth reported case of pachydermodactyly. It has previously been reported only in men; to the best of our knowledge, this is the first woman described with this condition.
