Re: Dupuytren's Contracture - Scandinavian ancestry of German Jews ? #germany

Charles,
My Lithuanian-born grandmother developed Duputryn's Contracture and her
hand ended up completely curled into itself. Today there is surgery to correct
it. Medical books do refer to the fact that it is more common among those
of northern European heritage, though not specifically Scandanavian and can
be inherited. As regards possible Scandanavian ancestry I have no idea,
however her father's surname, ADELSON, is a somewhat familiar name in
Scandanavia (spelled ADELSOHN). Regards,
