ABSTRACTPlantar fibromatosis is a disorder of fibrous-tissue proliferation, characterized by the replacement of elements of the plantar aponeurosis with abnormal fibrous tissue. It tends to have a benign clinical behavior with an insidious onset and slowly progressive course; eventually it is locally aggressive with invasion of the overlying skin or deep structure. The cause of plantar fibromatosis is unknown, but certain factors have been implicated in the etiology. We communicate the case of 42 years old woman and we make a brief review of the literature.
