Description/Abstract

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.
