Plantar fibromatosis

Abstract

. 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. A differential diagnosis for the heel pain along the medial arch could be a benign thickening of the plantar fascia associated with plantar fibromatosis. 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.
