The purpose of this series is to review the appearance of plantar fibromatosis with high-resolution ultrasonography (US) and highlight a new imaging sign termed the "comb sign." A retrospective study was performed for patients with a clinical diagnosis of plantar fibromatosis. Charts of 43 patients (age range, 26-77 years; mean age, 54 years) were reviewed to gather patient demographics and symptoms. Several US characteristics were evaluated with emphasis on any new imaging features. A total of 57 plantar fibromas in 43 patients were examined...

A 50-year-old lady presented with a right foot mass and pain for 1year. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a 3.9×3.2×5cm mass on plantar side of the forefoot deep to the major flexor tendons and plantar aponeurosis and inferior to 1st-4th metatarsals. The mass extended dorsally through the intermetatarsal space to the foot dorsum. Ultrasound guided biopsy was performed, which confirmed it was a fibroma. This case was further complicated by pathological fracture of the 3rd metatarsal. It was resected through a dorsal incision and surgical dislocation of the 2nd and 3rd tarsometatarsal joints...

Myopericytoma is a perivascular myoid neoplasm of skin and soft tissues characterized by numerous thin-walled blood vessels surrounded concentrically by round to spindle myoid tumor cells, which shows α-smooth muscle actin and h-caldesmon coexpression and commonly negativity for desmin. These tumors arise predominantly in extremities of adult patients with benign clinical course. Based on the architectural pattern, there are various histologic variants as classical-solid myopericytoma, hemangiopericytoma-like myopericytoma, angioleiomyoma-like myopericytoma, myofibroma-like myopericytoma, hipocelular fibroma-like myopericytoma, intravascular myopericytoma, cellular immature myopericytoma, and malignant myopericytoma...

Gorlin-Goltz syndrome (GGS), also known as nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (MIM 109 400), is a rare genetic condition with a prevalence between 1/56 000 and 1/256 000. Clinical presentation is usually characterized by multiple basal cell carcinomas, odontogenic jaw keratocysts, palmar or plantar pitting and skeletal anomalies. It is furthermore associated with the development of various tumors beside basal cell carcinoma, among which medulloblastoma is the most frequent. Increased incidence of other mesenchymal neoplasms, however, is also well known: recently the first adult case of gastric leiomyoma in GGS was reported, and the inclusion of "fibromas and leiomyomas of other organs" in the minor criteria for the diagnosis was suggested...

BACKGROUND: Extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma is a rare tumor with an indolent course, high propensity for local recurrence, metastases, and propensity for the proximal extremities of middle-aged males. CASE REPORT: We present the case of a 44-year-old man with an extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma in the plantar fascia of the medial arch initially thought to be a plantar fibroma. Magnetic resonance imaging of the lesion demonstrated a lobulated subcutaneous mass plantar to the tarsal bones and inseparable from the fascia...

BACKGROUND: One of the most common causes of heel pain is plantar fasciitis; however, there are other pathologic disorders that can mimic the symptoms and clinical presentation of this disorder. The purpose of this study was to retrospectively review the prevalence of various pathologic disorders on ultrasound in patients with proximal plantar heel pain. METHODS: The medical records and diagnostic ultrasound reports of patients presenting with plantar heel pain between March 1, 2006, and March 31, 2007, were reviewed retrospectively, and the prevalence of various etiologies was collected...

The Grand Rapids Arch Collapse classifications create a novel system for categorizing and correlating numerous common foot and ankle conditions related to a falling arch. The algorithm for treating these conditions is exceptionally replicable and has excellent outcomes. Gastrocnemius equinus diagnosis plays a crucial role in the pathology of arch collapse. A contracture of the gastrocnemius muscle is increasingly recognized as the cause of several foot and ankle conditions. The authors have expanded their indications for gastrocnemius recession to include arch pain without radiographic abnormality, calcaneus apophysitis, plantar fasciitis/fibromas, Achilles tendonosis, early-onset diabetic Charcot arthropathy, and neuropathic forefoot ulcers...

Ledderhose disease is disorder of the plantar aponeurosis. This disease is not so common and can be tackled with a surgical or conservative approach. A case of a 73-year-old man came to our attention who had a 26-year history of painless bilateral plantar nodules coalescing into an indurated mass. An ulcerative nodule had been noted in the last 16 months on the right foot, in the absence of trauma, not responsive to conservative treatment, so we decided to perform a biopsy. The histopatologic examination showed squamous cell carcinoma, with warty, well-differentiated, low-grade malignancy...

Soft tissue angiofibroma is a recently described neoplasm that typically presents as a slowly growing, painless mass in the soft tissues of the lower extremities. Cytogenetic and molecular studies have identified a recurrent t(5;8) translocation. Treatment is simple excision. Existing data suggest that this tumor is benign and has a low rate of local recurrence. The radiologic and pathologic differential diagnoses for this lesion include both benign and malignant lesions, including plantar fibromatosis, tenosynovial giant cell tumor, fibroma of tendon sheath, epithelioid sarcoma, and low-grade myxofibrosarcoma...
