The management of a case of quadrilateral flexural contracture in a 10-year-old pony is described. The animal was restored to normal appearance and function through a combination of surgical desmotomy and management techniques; the importance of analgesia and exercise as adjuncts to surgery is emphasised. The aetiology and pathogenesis of the condition in the immature animal and the adult is compared and a possible association is made between this condition and palmar fibromatosis (Dupuytren's contracture) occurring in man.
