Plantar fibromatosis

Haji Khairul Abd Kadir, Coonoor R Chandrasekar
Plantar fibromatosis is a rare, benign fibroproliferative disorder of the plantar fascia. It is considered as a low-grade tumour and it can be locally aggressive. It can present as painful swelling with impairment of local function. Upon failure of non-operative management, surgical treatment options include total fasciectomy or partial fasciectomy. Although surgical excision is the mainstay of treatment, recurrence rate can be up to 60%. The aim of this study was to determine the recurrence and complication rates of surgically treated plantar fibromatosis...

Plantar fibromatosis is a rare benign but often locally aggressive tumor of the plantar aponeurosis. Nonsurgical treatment is the first line of treatment for symptomatic lesions. Because of the high recurrence rate associated with surgical treatment, operation is indicated only when the lesions are highly symptomatic and conservative measures fail or the diagnosis is in question. The purpose of this technical note is to report the details of endoscopic subtotal fasciectomy. This may reduce the risks of skin necrosis and dehiscence, infection, and formation of painful hypertrophic scars...

Plantar fascia (PF) disorders commonly cause heel pain and disability in the general population. Imaging is often required to confirm diagnosis. This review article aims to provide simple and systematic guidelines for imaging assessment of PF disease, focussing on key findings detectable on plain radiography, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Sonographic characteristics of plantar fasciitis include PF thickening, loss of fibrillar structure, perifascial collections, calcifications and hyperaemia on Doppler imaging...

Connective tissue nevi (CTN) are dermal hamartomas characterized by an imbalance in the amount and distribution of the normal components of the extracellular dermal matrix, specifically collagen, elastin, and/or proteoglicans. The term "CTN" was first mentioned by Lewandowsky in 1921 (1), although it was not accepted until the review by Gutmann in 1926 (2). Classification of CTN was established by Uitto et al. (3) in 1980 according to clinical, genetic, and histopathological features. But this classification did not include zosteriform nevi...

Plantar fibromatosis, or Ledderhose disease, is a rare hyperproliferative disorder of the plantar aponeurosis. It may occur at any age, with the greatest prevalence at middle age and beyond. This disorder is more common in men than woman and it is sometimes associated with other forms of fibromatosis. Diagnosis is based on clinical examination. Ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be useful to confirm the diagnosis. A 44-year-old man with Ledderhose disease who underwent ultrasound and MR is described in this paper...

PURPOSE: Palmar and plantar fibromatosis (PPF) is a progressive connective tissue disorder of the hand/foot that often leads to debilitating functional impairment. In Europe, orthovoltage radiation therapy (RT) has been demonstrated to prevent local disease progression for up to 80% of patients with early-stage PPF. There are limited data reporting outcomes for populations outside of Europe or using electron RT. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Between 2008 and 2013, 44 early-stage PPF cases received RT...

BACKGROUND: The BRAF-inhibitor vemurafenib, used in patients with metastatic melanoma, induces multiple cutaneous side-effects. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this work was to evaluate the development of palmoplantar fibromatosis in a population of patients treated with the BRAF inhibitor vemurafenib. METHODS: Between April 2011 and February 2013, we initiated a treatment with vemurafenib in 53 patients with an unresectable stage IIIC or stage IV melanoma...

Plantar pain is a common problem endured by most adults at some point in their life that may result in considerable disability. Plantar fibromatosis is a locally invasive neoplasm, with the development of fibrous nodules on the plantar aspect of the feet, which can remain asymptomatic for years. (18)F-Fluorodeoxyglucose ((18)F-FDG) PET/CT has been more prevalent as the imaging modality of choice for cancer patients, but the imaged field of view is often from the base of the skull to the upper thighs. Therefore, the feet are typically not included in the field...

BACKGROUND: Soft tissue defects over the mid- and distal third tibia, heel, dorsum and plantar aspect of the foot and over the medial, lateral and posterior aspect of the ankle are a common scenario in clinical orthopaedic practice. In this article, we describe the utility of the reverse sural fasciocutaneous flap with a cutaneous pedicle in 109 clinical cases with distal lower limb soft tissue defects. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 109 patients were operated on for moderate (5-15 cm) and large (more than 15 cm) soft tissue defects at various sites along the lower limb including foot, heel and sole with the reverse sural fasciocutaneous flap...

A unique case of osteopoikilosis associated with plantar fibromatosis is reported herein, and we suggest that this hereditary osseocutaneous syndrome is caused by abnormal mesenchymal tissue.

BACKGROUND: Ablation techniques are widely used for solid malignant tumors in adults. There is no large series assessing the effectiveness of local ablative therapies in the treatment of malignant or aggressive benign lesions in children. OBJECTIVE: To review the existing evidence on the techniques and results of ablation for pediatric solid malignant or aggressive benign tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We searched MEDLINE for papers published between 1995 and 2012 that reported outcomes of radiofrequency, microwave and cryoablation, interstitial laser therapy, irreversible electroporation and percutaneous ethanol injection for patients younger than 18 years old...

INTRODUCTION: Palmar and plantar fascial fibromatoses are benign hyperproliferative disorders of the deep fascia of the palm and sole. This study seeks to examine the role of radiotherapy in the management of fascial fibromatosis. METHOD: Six consecutive cases of early-stage fascial fibromatosis treated with radiotherapy at the Adelaide Radiotherapy Centre between July 2008 and May 2011 were analysed. The results of the case series were compared with a systematic review of the literature...

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...

Morbus Ledderhose is a rare hyperproliferative disease of the plantar fascia, leading to the formation of nodules. Its origin is unknown. No causal therapy is available, and treatment remains symptomatic. Various therapeutic strategies to alleviate symptoms are available and are adapted to the severity of the disease. In early stages, conservative therapy including nonpharmacological, physical, and pharmacological treatments is applied. If the disease progresses, irradiation of the plantar surface, injections of steroids, shock wave therapy, and partial or complete fasciectomy as an ultimate therapy may be indicated...

Extra-abdominal periosteal desmoid tumors are uncommon nonmetastatic tumors of the extremities with a propensity for local recurrence. Lesions in the distal extremities are rare; a majority of extra-abdominal lesions occur in more proximal portions of the upper and lower extremities. This article reports a patient with an extra-abdominal periosteal desmoid tumor in the toe. A 37-year-old woman had a mass in her left third distal phalanx that was originally noted 3 years prior to presenting to the authors' institution...
