Ledderhose and Dupuytren Disease: Plantar and Palmar Fibromatosis
Ledderhose disease (A,B) is a rare, benign, painless thickening of the plantar fascia, most often in the central medial portions. Contracture and nodularity are similar to that of the more common Dupuytren disease in the hand (B), which may co-exist. As nodularity progresses, the toes stiffen and develop flexion contractures and walking may become painful. Bilateral disease is common.
