RUIZ ESCUSOL, Salomé; GOMEZ LOPEZ, Yolanda  and  MARTIN CALLIZO, Clara. Black heel. Rev Pediatr Aten Primaria [online]. 2016, vol.18, n.70, pp.183-184. ISSN 1139-7632.

The black heel is a benign lesion, common in teenagers that often practice sport, produced because of the continuous contact with the sport shoe, that manifests like a brown-black spot located at the touch zones of the heel. It disappears without any treatment, especially if sport ceases. It is important to know this entity to difference it from malignant melanoma, and avoid unnecessary derivations to dermatologists. Virtual consultations sending photos to specialists could help in doubtful cases. We present two cases of black heel in two young sport children.

Keywords : Black heel; Calcaneo.
