I contracted Dupuytren’s contracture 30 years ago. Did having DC predispose me to PD?

Dr. Levine answers: This is an interesting question, as up to 30% of men with Peyronie’s disease also have Dupuytren’s contracture. It may be that there is a similar genetic process here resulting in a site specific scarring in the hand and in the penis. You might talk to other male family members to determine whether they have evidence of Peyronie’s or DC.
