ABSTRACT
Introduction: Diverse lesions ranging from infective, inflammatory to neoplastic lesions occur in foot. There is not much literature available on the spectrum of lesions that affect foot.
Aims and objectives: This study aims to enumerate the clinical and histopathological spectrum of lesions of foot.
Materials and methods: This is a hospital based retrospective study of five years duration done between January 2016 to December 2020. The details are collected from the patient requisition forms and pathology records.
Results: On histopathological examination, the lesions were broadly classified into non-neoplastic and neoplastic. The non-neoplastic lesions were 12 cases (42.8%), of which infective aetiology were 3 cases (10.7%) and non-infective were 9 cases. All the infective aetiology cases were of actinomycosis (3 cases). The commonest non infective pathology was ganglion cyst (4 cases). The common benign tumours encountered were benign nerve sheath tumours (4 cases). The intermediate grade tumours were two cases which were one case each of pigmented villonodular synovitis and dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans. The malignancies encountered were synovial sarcoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and malignant melanoma), of which malignant melanoma was most common (3cases).
Conclusion: This study enumerates the lesions of foot, and emphasises the clinical and histopathological features of foot lesions.
