As such, portions of the diseased tissue may be left in the foot after surgery.

We present the case of a sixty-three year old woman suffering from Ledderhose disease from adolescence, along with Dupuytren’s disease diseases which can frequently be linked. It has been noted that it is an inherited disease and of variable occurrence within families, i.

The initial proliferating stage is most suitable for radiotherapy. Like in wound healing this tissue maturates building cords for Dupuytren’s and eventually contracts actively or passively fixing a contraction. There is also a suspected, although unproven, link between incidence and alcoholismsmokingliver diseases, thyroid problems, and stressful work involving the feet. It would also be of interest to locate affected family members for genetic study.

This page was last edited on 29 Novemberat Surgery of Ledderhose’s disease is difficult because tendons, nerves, and muscles are located very closely to each other. Dupuytren’s disease and Ledderhose disease start with fibrous tissue in form of nodules that, specifically in its initial stage, is biologically very active “proliferative”.

There is also some evidence that it might be genetic. Radiotherapy is capable of stopping the growth of Dupuytren nodules either permanently or for a long time. Palmar fibromatosis Dupuytren’s contracture Fibrosarcoma: Plantar fibromatosis can be seen in both children and adults, although there is a recognised male predilection M: Case 2 Case 2.

An MRI Scan Magnetic Resonance Imaging is usually the imaging of choice to determine between other possible conditions such as ganglion cysts. Again typically seen as a relatively well-defined region of multinodular thickening about the inferior margin of the plantar fascia. Wheeless’ Textbook of Orthopaedics. Although the origin of the disease is unknown, there is enfermeadd that it is an aggressive healing response to small tears in the plantar fascia, almost as if the fascia over-repairs itself following an injury.
