    Piezogenic Pedal Papules with Mitral Valve Prolapse.
    Indian J Dermatol 2016 Mar-Apr;61(2):234
    Department of Cardiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Baskent, Ankara, Turkey.
    Piezogenic pedal papules (PPP) are herniations of subcutaneous adipose tissue into the dermis. PPP are skin-colored to yellowish papules and nodules on lateral surfaces of feet that typically become apparent when the patient stands flat on his/her feet. Some connective tissue diseases and syndromes have been reported in association with PPP. Read More

    Classic Ehlers-Danlos syndrome: case report and brief review of literature.
    Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2013 ;21(2):118-22
    Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Hospital São João, Alameda Professor Hernâni Monteiro, 4200-319 Porto, Portugal.
    Easy bruising in children represents a diagnostic conundrum. Although trauma (accidental or not) and bleeding disturbances are the most common causes, other rarer etiologies should be considered in differential diagnosis. When a 4-year-old male patient presented with a history of bruising and hematomas after slight injuries, coagulopathy and physical abuse were suspected. Read More

    A piezogenic papule with histopathologic features simulating angiomyxolipoma.
    Am J Dermatopathol 2012 Dec;34(8):e111-3
    Department of Dermatology, The Armed Forces Hongcheon Hospital, Hongcheon, Korea.
    Piezogenic papules are lesions that occur on the feet and wrists because of the herniation of fat through the dermis. These papules can be painful or completely asymptomatic. Poor compartmentalization of fat occurs because of thinner than normal fibrous trabeculae and contributes to the formation of piezogenic papules. Read More

    Skin conditions in figure skaters, ice-hockey players and speed skaters: part I - mechanical dermatoses.
    Sports Med 2011 Sep;41(9):709-19
    Department of Dermatology, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, NY 10032, USA.
    Figure skaters, ice-hockey players and speed skaters experience a range of dermatologic conditions and tissue-related injuries on account of mechanical trauma, infectious pathogens, inflammatory processes and environmental factors related to these competitive pursuits. Sports medicine practitioners, family physicians, dermatologists and coaches should be familiar with these skin conditions to ensure timely and accurate diagnosis and management of affected athletes. This review is Part I of a subsequent companion review and provides a comprehensive review of mechanical dermatoses experienced by ice-skating athletes, including skater's nodules and its variants, pump bumps, piezogenic pedal papules, talon noir, skate/lace bite, friction bullae, corns and calluses, onychocryptosis, skater's toe and skate blade-induced lacerations.

    A nonsurgical approach to painful piezogenic pedal papules.
    Cutis 2004 May;73(5):339-40, 346
    Department of Family Practice and Community Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia 19104-4283, USA.
    For more than 3 decades, piezogenic pedal papules have been described in the literature. While many individuals with these papules are asymptomatic, patients with trauma or connective tissue diseases can experience pain. In our case study, we describe a unique, nonsurgical approach that abates the pain of painful piezogenic pedal papule (PPPP). Read More

    Cutaneous manifestations of disease in athletes.
    Skinmed 2003 Jan-Feb;2(1):34-40
    The Department of Dermatology, Tulane University School of Medicine, 1430 Tulane Avenue TB36, New Orleans, LA 70112, USA.
    Various means of skin injury in athletes are examined, supplementing those discussed in Cutaneous Manifestations of Disease Part 1 (November/ December). Skin injury due to mechanical means such as corns, calluses, talon noir (calcaneal petechiae), tennis toe, joggers nipples, and piezogenic pedal papules will be discussed followed by a thorough discussion of environmental means of skin injury. There are a variety of ways that the environment may affect athletes both during competition and years after the competition is finished. Read More

    Painful piezogenic pedal papules: response to local electro-acupuncture.
    Br J Dermatol 1997 Apr;136(4):628-30
    Dermatology Department, West Suffolk Hospital, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, U.K.
    We report the case of a woman who had pain in both heels which was exacerbated by long periods of exercise. On examination, there were small flesh-coloured papules which appeared over the medial and lateral aspects of the heels only on weight bearing. Coincidentally, she was noted to have larger flesh-coloured papules over the anterior surface of the shins. Read More

    Piezogenic pedal papules in two family members.
    Cutis 1996 Apr;57(4):260-2
    Division of Dermatology, Saint Louis University Health Sciences Center, Missouri, USA.
    Piezogenic pedal papules are small, occasionally painful, fat herniations that become apparent when weight is placed on the heel. Although the cause is unknown, hereditary factors may play a role. This is the second report of two family members with this condition. Read More

    Piezogenic papules of the feet in healthy children and their possible relation with connective tissue disorders.
    Pediatr Dermatol 1991 Dec;8(4):277-9
    Department of Pediatrics, Academic Medical Centre, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
    Piezogenic papules (PP) are pressure-induced lesions that appear on the heels while bearing weight, due to herniation of fat tissue into the dermis. They are present in the majority of adults. Because of the poor quality of connective tissue in hereditary disorders of connective tissue, such as the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, it has been suggested that PP would be larger in number and diameter in this group of disorders.

    Piezogenic wrist papules: a common and asymptomatic finding.
    J Am Acad Dermatol 1991 Mar;24(3):415-7
    Department of Dermatology, University of North Carolina Hospitals, Chapel Hill 27514.
    The first description of piezogenic wrist papules is presented. Twenty-nine persons were examined; 76% had pedal papules and 86% had wrist papules. Piezogenic papules are a common, nonhereditary finding and are not secondary to an inherent connective tissue defect. Read More

    Piezogenic pedal papules extending into the arch. Case report and discussion.
    J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 1990 Aug;80(8):444-5
    Department of Medicine, Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine, Philadelphia.
    A unique presentation of a painful piezogenic papule in the medial longitudinal arch has been presented. This lesion puts pressure on nearby structures, causing pain. Walking without pain is achieved through orthopedic padding. Read More

    [Pedal papules in newborn infants].
    Med Cutan Ibero Lat Am 1990 ;18(1):9-12
    Hospital Posadas de Haedo (provincia de Buenos Aires), Argentina.
    Four cases of newborn children who presented pedal papules since birth, are reported. They showed the following features, different from the ones seen in adults: a solitary lesion, bigger size, localization on medial plantar region aspect of the heel, presence at birth, absence of an obvious piezogenic factor, physiopathogenic model that explains the development of lesions in adults, which are compared to those appearing in the newborn, are proposed.

    [Piezogenic nodules].
    Med Cutan Ibero Lat Am 1989 ;17(6):399-401
    Facultad de Medicina, Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina.
    We make a brief bibliographic revision of the entity. We observe three cases with piezogenic pedal nodules, wrongly named painful piezogenic pedal papules; as they not always have that localization and symptomatology. An easy treatment is proposed, with an effective result to calm the pain when it appears. Read More

    Painful piezogenic pedal papules in patients with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
    J Am Acad Dermatol 1987 Aug;17(2 Pt 1):205-9
    Painful piezogenic pedal papules were observed in 10 of 29 patients with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. The diagnosis was made by examining each patient while he or she stood with full body weight on the heels and by observing the appearance of the painful papules on the medial, posterior, and lateral aspects of both heels. Biopsy specimens of papules demonstrated a thickened and dense dermis. Read More

    Painful piezogenic pedal papules on a child with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
    Pediatr Dermatol 1985 Nov;3(1):45-7
    A 5-year-old girl with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome developed painful piezogenic pedal papules. She had suffered from pain in her heels for the previous two years and had undergone extensive orthopedic examinations that revealed no abnormalities. On admission, she had typical signs associated with piezogenic pedal papules (PPP), with pain induced by standing and disappearance of the lesions and the pain on relief of pressure. Read More

    Dermatologic aspects of sports medicine.
    J Am Acad Dermatol 1980 Oct;3(4):415-24
    The skin lies at the interface of the athlete and the sports milieu and is subjected to many sports-related dermatoses. Direct traumatic injuries, such as friction blisters, black heel, piezogenic papules, and traumatic subungual hematomas, occur regularly. Environmental insults such as sunburn, cold-induced injury, and contact dermatitis plague the sportsman. Read More
