Our expert says:
Lederhosen Syndrome is a plantar fibromatosis which is a benign (non-cancerous) growth of connective tissue in the plantar fascia which is in the sole of the foot. These are similar to Dupuytren's contractures in the palm of the hand which occur most commonly in the area of the 4th digit. There is loads of information on the net, just do a search for plantar fibromatosis. They are not normally a problem but if they become large they can cause pain if they affect the weightbearing area of the foot. They can be surgically excised but this is not always successful. From a podiatrist's point of view, a presciption insole can help offload the weight from the area.
