130 Possible Causes for Dermal Contractures

  • Burn Injury

    If deep dermal burns are not identified as such and are wrongly given conservative treatment, scar contractures may form.[] If the burn fails to heal in 3 weeks, the risk for hypertrophic scar and contracture formation increases and the healed wound exhibits an aesthetically displeasing scar.[] In some cases, the use of dermal replacement materials can be sensible.[]

  • Hidradenitis Suppurativa

    It is characterised by the presence of tender subcutaneous nodules that may rupture, resulting in deep dermal abscesses, fibrosis with dermal contractures and induration of[] contractures and ropelike elevation of the skin, or double-ended (bridged) comedones. 4,6 Areas that may be affected by HS lesions are the axillae, areola of the breast,[] […] purulent, and disfiguring. 4,6 Primary lesions can be painful or tender erythematous papules or nodules, painful or tender abscesses and inflamed draining papules or nodules, dermal[]

  • Scrotal Elephantiasis

    As the disease process continues, fibrosis, dermal contractures and induration of the skin may occur.[] contractures, keloids (some that are still pitted with follicular ostia), scarring, skin tags, fibrosis, anal fissures, fistulas (i...[] […] pyogenic granulomas, cysts, painful erythematous papules and plaques, folliculitis, open ulcerations, chronic sinuses, fistulas, sinus tracts, scrotal and genital lyphedema, dermal[]

  • Diabetic Ulcer

    Dermal skin substitutes help prevent wound contraction and offer greater mechanical stability.[] The goals of skin substitutes include wound coverage, complete wound closure, reduced healing time, reduced pain, reduced post-operative contracture, and improved aesthetics[]

  • Familial Acne Inversa

    As the disease progresses, formation of fistulas, comedones, fibrosis, dermal contractures, and hardening of the skin occur.[] There were multiple, intermingled, 2 to 6 cm, at places linear hypertrophic and puckered scars and dermal contractures in the axillae and the anogenital region.[] contractures and ropelike elevation of the skin Double-ended comedones The axillae and the groin are the 2 areas most frequently affected.[]

  • Onychomycosis

    This creates a controlled dermal wound while leaving the epidermis intact.[] The wound healing process stimulates growth of new collagen as well as contracture and tightening of the tissue.[]
