Plantar fibromatosis

Case contributed by Dr Maulik S Patel


Complaining of the right foot midsole region nodule for about 2 years. No history of trauma / local pain.

Patient Data

Age: 20 years
Gender: Female

There is a well-defined lesion at the clinically palpable swelling. The lesion measures about 34 x 14 x 6 mm. It involves plantar fascia which appears to enter and exits the lesion. The lesion is non-compressible, lobulated, solid, heterogeneous, hypoechoic without calcification/ cystic changes. Posterior acoustic enhancement is present. There is no intralesional flow. Rest of the plantar fascia is normal.

There is focal hypoechoic thickening involving contralateral asymptomatic left foot.

Case Discussion

A young female presented with the right sole painless lesion. Ultrasound findings favor right foot fibroma from plantar fascia. There is a presence of much smaller plantar fibroma in the asymptomatic left foot.
