Pachydermodactyly in poultry workers: A report of 2 cases

Author(s):

Rajan Masih

Abstract:
Pachydermodactyly (PDD) is an, acquired form of digital fibromatosis. It is commonly found in poultry workers, and can be disabling, causing significant pain, deformity, and loss of function. Many poultry processing plants have contractual relationships with primary care or urgent care practices for occupational health and industrial injuries. We describe two cases of PDD from chicken catching treated at an Urgent Care Facility. Familiarity with this condition can improve diagnostic accuracy, treatment, and prevention of long-term disability.
