The successful use of collagenase for Ledderhose disease (plantar fibromatosis) in a paediatric patient: a case report.

J Surg Case Rep 2021 Feb 28;2021(2):rjaa501. Epub 2021 Feb 28.

Trauma and Orthopaedic Department, Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, UK.

Ledderhose disease is a connective tissue disorder involving proliferation of fibrous tissue in the plantar fascia of the foot. Histologically identical manifestations exist in the hand (Dupuytren's contracture) and penis (Peyronie's disease), and collagenase injections are approved as a treatment in both, however not in Ledderhose, where the treatment of choice remains surgical resection. Surgery is associated with high rates of recurrence and need for further surgery, so alternative therapies should be sought. Read More

Department of Physical & Rehabilitation Medicine, Kangbuk Samsung Hospital, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Background: Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) has been used as a safe alternative treatment for refractory musculoskeletal diseases, such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy and gluteal tendinopathy, and various forms of fibromatosis including palmar or penile fibromatosis. However, there is limited published data for clinical and sonographic features of plantar fibromatosis after ESWT. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term clinical outcome of ESWT in ultrasonography-confirmed plantar fibromatosis and ultrasonographic changes of plantar fibroma after ESWT.

Clinical features and management of superficial fibromatoses.

J Dtsch Dermatol Ges 2019 Apr 13;17(4):393-397. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Department of Dermatology and Allergy Biederstein, Technical University of Munich, Munich, Germany.

Fibromatoses are a group of benign connective tissue tumors characterized by the infiltrative, aggressive proliferation of well-differentiated fibroblasts, leading to frequent local recurrence. Within this heterogeneous disease group, superficial fibromatoses show slower growth and more benign infiltration of surrounding tissues than deep fibromatoses. Superficial fibromatoses relevant to dermatology include palmar, plantar, and penile fibromatosis, knuckle pads, pachydermodactyly and infantile digital fibromatosis. Read More
