DODECADACTYLITIS Meaning and Definition

  1. Dodecadactylitis is a medical term that refers to a condition characterized by inflammation and swelling in the hands or feet, usually affecting all ten digits. The term "dodecadactylitis" is derived from the Greek words "dodeka," meaning twelve, and "daktylos," meaning finger or toe, and the suffix "-itis," referring to inflammation. However, the condition primarily affects the fingers and toes rather than specifically involving twelve digits.

    This inflammatory condition can be caused by various factors, including autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis or psoriatic arthritis, infections, trauma, or gout. Symptoms of dodecadactylitis often include redness, warmth, pain, and swelling in all ten fingers or toes, making it difficult for individuals to perform daily activities that involve hand or foot movements.

    Diagnosis of dodecadactylitis typically involves a physical examination, medical history evaluation, and laboratory tests to determine the underlying cause of the inflammation. Treatment options depend on the underlying cause and may include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to reduce pain and inflammation, disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) for autoimmune conditions, antibiotics for infections, and lifestyle changes to manage gout.

    It is important to seek medical attention if symptoms of dodecadactylitis arise, as early diagnosis and treatment can help alleviate pain, prevent further complications, and improve overall quality of life.
