I saw my neurologist today for my 6 month check up and he noticed my operation scar on the palm of my hand, I told him that it was from an operation I had for "trigger finger". Then he said it was from long term use of Dilantin ~ called "Dupyutren's Contracture".
The attached documentation states that one of the causes is "Epilepsy" as well as acoholism and diabetes.

I had no idea that this condition was linked to epilepsy.

I have this condition:

I had this on my left hand as well as carpel tunnel surgery and I go in March to have the right hand done. (both Carpel tunnel and Dupuytren's Contracture surgery)
