Fibrous Tissue Abnormalities – Plantar Fibromatosis

February 8th, 2014

Plantar Fibromatosis is a common skin condition that I encounter in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices.  Plantar Fibromatosis, also called Ledderhose’s disease, is very similar to Dupuytren’s Contracture in which nodules develop on the soles of the feet.  Fibrosis develops along the plantar fascia and is typically idiopathic, no known cause.  Treatment involves excision of the plantar fascia and intralesional kenalog injections have been reported to help some patients.
