Abstract

The prevalence and incidence of doctor-diagnosed Dupuytren's disease in the general population is unknown. From the healthcare register for Skåne region (population 1.3 million) in southern Sweden, we identified all residents aged 3/420 years (on 31 December 2013), who 1998 to 2013 had consulted a doctor and received the diagnosis Dupuytren's disease (International Classification of Diseases 10th Revision code M720). During the 16 years, 7207 current residents (72% men) had been diagnosed with Dupuytren's disease; the prevalence among men was 1.35% and among women 0.5%. Of all people diagnosed, 56% had received treatment (87% fasciectomy). In 2013, the incidence of first-time doctor-diagnosed Dupuytren's disease among men was 14 and... (More)

The prevalence and incidence of doctor-diagnosed Dupuytren's disease in the general population is unknown. From the healthcare register for Skåne region (population 1.3 million) in southern Sweden, we identified all residents aged 3/420 years (on 31 December 2013), who 1998 to 2013 had consulted a doctor and received the diagnosis Dupuytren's disease (International Classification of Diseases 10th Revision code M720). During the 16 years, 7207 current residents (72% men) had been diagnosed with Dupuytren's disease; the prevalence among men was 1.35% and among women 0.5%. Of all people diagnosed, 56% had received treatment (87% fasciectomy). In 2013, the incidence of first-time doctor-diagnosed Dupuytren's disease among men was 14 and among women five per 10,000. The annual incidence among men aged 3/450 years was 27 per 10,000. Clinically important Dupuytren's disease is common in the general population.
