Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Plantar fibromatosis is a benign multinodular lesion occurring in the plantar fascia. It is generally an asymptomatic lesion or may occasionally cause discomfort or pain in the foot. We present a man who has bilateral flexion contractures of his great toes as a result of his plantar fibromatosis. A review of the literature indicates that this is a very rare presentation of plantar fibromatosis.
