Prevalence and incidence of doctor-diagnosed Dupuytren’s disease: A population-based study. [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
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 ⩾20 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 ⩾50 years was 27 per 10,000. Clinically important Dupuytren’s disease is common in the general population., Level of evidence: III
