CONGENITAL PEDAL PAPULES
By Gary M. White, MD
Congenital pedal papules are congenital papulonodules usually about the heels.
- Many different names have been used, e.g., congenital fibrolipomata.
- They are analagous to painful pedal papules.
- There is no pain with ambulation. If pain, think of another diagnosis.
Seveal skin-colored non-inflammatory asymptomatic soft nodules, 5-10 mm in diameter are seen about the sides of the feet.
No treatment needed.
