Clinical misdiagnosis of Morton's Neuroma: a case of early rheumatoid arthritis

Robinson, C.J., Otter, S.J. and Bowen, C.J. (2003) Clinical misdiagnosis of Morton's Neuroma: a case of early rheumatoid arthritis British Journal of Podiatry, 6, (3), pp. 85-87.

Record type: Article


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.
