Superficial acral fibromyxoma is a benign and slow-growing solitary soft-tissue neoplasm. Since being described in 2001, more than 100 cases of superficial acral fibromyxoma on the foot have been reported worldwide, none of which have been reported in the podiatric medical literature. Only nine cases of superficial acral fibromyxoma have been reported with presentation on the plantar heel. We report an unusual case of a 47-year-old Jamaican woman with a painful, erythematous nodule on her right heel that was diagnosed as superficial acral fibromyxoma.

FIRST METATARSAL HEAD AND MEDIAL EMINENCE WIDTHS WITH AND WITHOUT HALLUX VALGUS

Background: Resection of the medial eminence in hallux valgus surgery is common. True hypertrophy of the medial eminence in hallux valgus is debated. No studies have compared metatarsal head width in patients with hallux valgus and control patients.
Methods: We reviewed 43 radiographs with hallux valgus and 27 without hallux valgus. We measured medial eminence width, first metatarsal head width, and first metatarsal shaft width in patients with and without radiographic hallux valgus.
Results: Medial eminence width was 1.12 mm larger in patients with hallux valgus (P < .0001 ). Metatarsal head width was 2.81 mm larger in patients with hallux valgus (P < .001 ). Metatarsal shaft width showed no significant difference (P = .63).
Conclusions: Metatarsal head width and medial eminence width are significantly larger on anteroposterior weightbearing radiographs in patients with hallux valgus. However, frontal plane rotation of the first metatarsal likely accounts for this difference. (J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 106(5): 323-327, 2016)Read More »
