Can a cord be first sign of Ledderhose?

Hi,

I have Dupuytren on both hands (no contraction) and I now can feel a cord on my right foot, but no bumps. I can feel the cord when I flex my foot actively but the cord seems to disappear when I keep my foot flexed but relaxed. Can this be a first sign of Ledderhose disease, even if I notice no bumps? Or can it be something else?

Best,

Isabelle

Hi,
Isabelle

I hope you doing well!
I have read your problem.if you think that Dupuytren’s contracture of the hands is bad, imagine it happening to your feet. Ledderhose disease is a condition that causes nodules to form on the underside of the foot. The skin and tissue on the underside of the foot become thick and stiff, causing pain and discomfort when you walk.

This is the reason why Ledderhose is also known as “Dupuytren’s in feet.” It is very similar to Dupuytren’s contracture disease as it has the same effects; the only difference is that Ledderhose affects the foot while Dupuytren’s contracture affects the hand.

Ledderhose, however, is considered a rare disease by WHO. It is very infrequent that the thickening and tightening of the skin and tissue of your foot pull your toe back. However, the symptoms of Ledderhose disease are common, including pain around your ankle joint, tightened skin, and the feeling of pins and needles in your feet.

I hope this information helpful for you.
