Abstract

Dupuytren's and Ledderhose disease can be a cumbersome condition in patients with a severe diathesis with a very early onset. Two brothers are described with a reversed radial forearm flap on both hands and two upper lateral arm flaps on both feet with a long-term follow-up ranging from 14 to 25 years. They had multiple procedures of both hands before the flaps were considered. No recurrence occurred under the flap. In very severe diathesis flaps should be considered in an earlier phase to prevent multiple procedures and early recurrence.
