Plantar fibromatosis is a disease that is rarely encountered in the clinical practice of dermatology. It is characterized by a benign, nodular, proliferation of fibrous tissue within the plantar fascia. It is much less common than palmar fibromatosis (Dupytrens contracture) but shares several features with this condition. It preferentially affect men between 50-60 years of age and is associated with diabetes, alcoholism, epilepsy, and other fibromatous diseases like Dupytrens, Peyronies, knuckle-pad thickening, or a frozen shoulder. Care must be taken with the histopathologic examination because plantar fibromatosis may infrequently resemble low grade fibrosarcoma. We herein report two cases of plantar fibromatosis.
