Finger & Hand Issues

A reduction in flexion of the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joints is associated with the loss of the creases in the skin overlying the dorsal surface of the DIP joints of the fingers. The gradient of severity is the same as seen in the nails; therefore, the index fingers are the most affected.
Forum Description:
In NPS, a reduction in flexion of the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joints is associated with loss of the creases in the skin overlying the dorsal surface of the DIP joints of the fingers. The gradient of severity is the same as seen in the nails; therefore, the index fingers are the most affected. Hyperextension of the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joints with flexion of the DIP joints (resulting in "swan-necking") and fifth finger clinodactyly may be seen.
