Abstract
The plantar area is different from other parts of the skin because its unique structure is resistant to external stress from physical activities. However, hyperkeratotic local skin thickening due to standing for long periods of time, recurrent minor traumas, unsuitable shoe choice, or bone deformity is called a callus. This condition, which is seen in more than 78% of the population, is more frequent in older populations. Calluses may cause workload loss, difficulty in carrying out daily activities, and falls by causing pain and difficulty in walking. There are various methods of treatment and these methods vary depending on the characteristics of the condition. This study is the case report of a 67-year-old female patient who had multiple calluses on one foot.
