Abstract
Introduction: Piezogenic pedal papules (PPP), which are forms of responses to internal mechanical pressure, appear on the wrists and especially on feet. Repeated trauma or an inherent collagen defect mainly as Ehlers–Danlos syndrome can cause pain symptoms in heels. The PPP are mostly asymptomatic and noticed incidentally.
Case Report: Unlike the majority of PPP cases, two patients (both housewives), who took part in the present study, were older and they had severe pain associated with PPP. One injection of a solution of equal amounts of betamethasone and prilocaine was applied in treatment of pain in both patients.
Conclusion: During follow-ups the patients did not report any clinical complaints considering the PPP and their VAS score remained significantly low.

Keywords: Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Heel pain, Obesity, Piezogenic pedal papules
