Abstract

Pachydermodactyly is a rare benign superficial fibromatosis, painless and asymptomatic, characterized by diffuse increase of connective tissue in the skin of the proximal interphalangeal joints of the second, third and fourth fingers, with symmetrical character, usually associated with trauma. The histopathology is non-specific, showing epidermal hyperplasia, increased collagen in the dermis and slight increase in the number of fibroblasts. The authors present the case of a 27 years old male patient with pachydermodactyly associated with repeated trauma related to their work.
