A Pregnant Woman With Multi-fragmented Giant Cell Tumor of Tendon Sheath: A Rare Anatomical Location.
Abstract Giant cell tumor of the tendon sheath (GCTTS) in the foot is a rare pathology and is involved in the differential diagnosis of soft tissue tumors of the foot and ankle. Although it can affect any age group, mainly occurs at the 3rd and 5th decade, with being more common in female. Histopathological examination is a major definitive method for diagnosis, although physical examination and radiological imaging are help-full to reach a diagnosis preoperatively. There are many treatment options but marginal excision is the most commonly used one among them. Here in, A 26-year-old pregnant woman with a multi-fr...

The Misdiagnosis of Acral Lentiginous Melanoma: Three Case Presentations.
We present three cases of ALM that were initially misdiagnosed and referred to the senior author in an effort to assess why misdiagnosis is common. The existing literature illuminates clinical pitfalls in diagnosing ALM. The differential diagnosis of many different podiatric skin and nail disorders should include ALM. While making the correct diagnosis is essential, the prognosis is affected by the duration of the disease and level of invasiveness. Unfortunately, most of the reported misdiagnosed cases are of later stage and worse prognosis. This review highlights that foot and ankle specialists should meet suspect lesions...

An Unusual Case of a Fibular Sesamoid Phalangeal Ligament Tear Due to Chronic Trauma.
Abstract Injuries involving the first metatarsophalangeal joint and its associated structures are common, especially in athletes. However, injuries to the hallucal sesamoid complex comprised only 3% of all podiatric sports medicine injuries reported by Agosta.1 This case study reports a female ballet dancer with an isolated fibular sesamoid retraction injury that presented with a history of chronic micro trauma secondary to overuse. When consulting epidemiological studies of forefoot injuries involving the hallucal sesamoid complex, we were unable to find a single instance of an isolated retraction of the fibular ...

Temperature as a Causative Factor in Diabetic Foot Ulceration: A Call to Revisit Ulcer Pathomechanics.
CONCLUSIONS: Increased plantar temperatures in individuals with a history of ulcers may include acute temperature increases from plantar stresses, chronic inflammation from prolonged stresses, and impairment in temperature regulation from autonomic neuropathy. Diabetic foot temperatures, particularly in those with previous ulcers, may easily reach hazard thresholds indicated by prior pressure ulcer studies.

Comparative Evaluation of Radiographic Parameters of Foot Pronation in Two Different Conditions versus Barefoot.
Abstract BACKGROUND: To date, there is conflicting evidence that high-end "motion control" running shoes can correct and control rearfoot pronation. Many methods have been used to evaluate the efficacy of motion control footwear in reducing hindfoot pronation during gait, including stop-motion photography, three-dimensional camera kinematic analysis, and three-dimensional bone modeling using computed tomography. Until now, there have been no radiographic studies that examined the effect of motion control running shoes on the static posture of the foot. Murley et al devised a reliable system that correlat...

Metatarsus Primus Elevatus Resolution After First Metatarsophalangeal Joint Arthroplasty.
CONCLUSIONS: Metatarsus primus elevatus was reduced significantly after first metatarsophalangeal joint arthroplasty. Resolution occurred rapidly and was maintained at the final postoperative visit. This could be due to MPE being a manifestation of HL and not a cause. Based on the results of this study, osteotomies may be unnecessary to surgically address MPE because it can spontaneously correct after reinstitution of first metatarsophalangeal joint motion.

The Role of Shoe and Sock Sanitization in the Management of Superficial Fungal Infections of the Feet.
Abstract Because of the ubiquitous nature of dermatophytes and a lack of an adaptive immune response in the nail plate, recurrence and relapse rates associated with superficial fungal infections are high (10%-53%). Cured or improved dermatophytosis patients could become reinfected if exposed to fungal reservoirs, such as an infected shoe, sock, or textile. To prevent this, footwear, sock, and textile sanitization methods can be used. To provide insight into effective sanitization options, the focus of this article is to review footwear, sock, and textile sanitization studies conducted throughout history (1920-2016...
