Abstract

Xanthomas are local collections of lipid-laden macrophages and collagen, which are usually associated with impaired lipoprotein metabolism. Xanthomas occur frequently in the skin, subcutis, or tendon, and occasionally in the plantar fascia. Small numbers of xanthomas have been surgically confirmed in the plantar fascia and their sonographic appearance has not been described in the literature. We present sonographic findings of a pathologically proven plantar fascia xanthoma, which was initially mistaken as plantar fibromatosis.
