Although Painful fat herniation, described as painful feet due to fat herniations through the thin fascial layers of the weight-bearing parts of the heel[1] is rare, piezogenic pedal papules[1] or Piezogenic papules[2] are very common.[3] These papules can also be found in wrist areas and commonly found in connective tissue disorders, especially Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.[4] However, due to their preponderence amongst humans, their presence does not automatically mean the existence of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and in most cases they are of little significance.
