    The correct answer is Dupuytren's contracture (also known as morbus Dupuytren, Dupuytren's disease, or palmar fibromatosis, and sometimes misidentified as Dupuytren's constricture) which is a fixed flexion contracture of the hand where the fingers bend towards the palm and cannot be fully extended (straightened). It is named after Baron Guillaume Dupuytren, the surgeon who described an operation to correct the affliction.

    Dupuytren's contracture is caused by underlying contractures of the palmar aponeurosis (or palmar fascia). The ring finger and little finger are the fingers most commonly affected.
