Clinical misdiagnosis of Morton's Neuroma: a case of early rheumatoid arthritis
British Journal of Podiatry, 6, (3), .
A fit and apparently healthy male patient presents with symptoms and clinical signs consistent with a Morton's neuroma.
Following excisional surgery, histopathology confirms the lesion as a rheumatoid nodule; this proves to be the presenting
feature of rheumatoid arthritis in this patient.
This is a very unusual differential diagnosis, which should be considered during the assessment process and is,
therefore, highly pertinent to clinicians.
