A patient with Dupuytren's disease with involvement of the palmar fascial complex and digital contracture is described. A vertical cord had developed in the transverse ligament of the palmar aponeurosis fibers and the underlying septa of Legueu and Juvara. The cord was composed of a pretendinous band, transverse ligament of the palmar aponeurosis, and septum of Legueu and Juvara. The cord was attached deeply in the soft tissue confluence of the sagittal band, palmar plate, and interpalmar plate ligament. Involvement of the transverse ligament of the palmar aponeurosis and septa of Legueu and Juvara in Dupuytren's disease is rare. Understanding of the normal and pathologic fascial anatomy explains their simultaneous involvement and is necessary for complete ablation of the diseased tissue.
