Resumen

BULLER VIQUEIRA, Eva; BULLER VIQUEIRA, Esperanza  y  CABELLO PULIDO, Juana. Family Ledderhose disease. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2013, vol.6, n.3, pp.175-177. ISSN 2386-8201.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S1699-695X2013000300010.

Ledderhose disease is a benign hyperprofilation of fibroblasts and collagen at plantar aponeurosis level. A low incidence pathology and considered by some authors as a rare disease. Whole family involvement is even more unusual. 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). A family of nine siblings, four of whom being affected by plantar fibromatosis, and six with Dupuytren's disease. Other family members also affected. This disease is not very well known in primary care, probably due to its low incidence. We believe it is recommendable to review the pathology for its correct treatment and referral where necessary. It would also be of interest to locate affected family members for genetic study.

Palabras clave : Family plantar fibromatosis; Ledderhose disease; Heredity; Foot Diseases.
