Osteoarthritis of distal interphalangeal joint

Common Name(s)

Osteoarthritis of distal interphalangeal joint

In the hand, osteoarthritis can develop in the distal interphalangeal and the first carpometacarpal (base of thumb) and proximal interphalangeal joints ({6:Stefansson et al., 2003}). Patients with osteoarthritis may have one, a few, or all of these sites affected. Heberden nodes are bony excrescences of the phalanges of the distal interphalangeal joints of the fingers ({5:Stecher, 1955}). They can be considered a variety of osteoarthrosis, or degenerative arthritis. For a phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of osteoarthritis, see OS1 ({165720}).
