    What's this sign called, and what could be the underlying condition?

    It's not RA.

    I'll post the correct answer in a day or three!

    Correct answer:

    Yes, it's prayer sign due to DM (diabetic cheiroarthropathy).

    Reduced joint mobility and thickened skin cause flexion contractures in DM, kaing patients unable to place all the fingers to the others.
