Definition

Flesh-colored or yellowish papules, 2 mm or larger, that are responses to internal mechanical pressure and weakness in the connective tissue in the dermis, appear commonly over the medial aspect of the heel, but in some cases on the wrists. They are thought to represent herniations of adipose tissue through the plantar fascia retinaculum. [from HPO]
