Plantar fibromatosis


. Plantar fibromatosis is defined as a benign fibrous disorder involving the plantar aponeurosis. Although its incidence is well described on the hands, it is less commonly seen on the feet, and its etiology is unknown.

Its high recurrence after surgical excision and problematic scarring and wound presents a significant challenge to the reconstructive foot and ankle surgeon. This article reviews the history, clinical presentation, pathologic findings, and surgical approaches to the treatment of plantar fibromatosis.
