Acta Medica (Hradec Kralove). 2007;50(3):221-222. doi: 10.14712/18059694.2017.87.


An illustrated case with Morton's metatarsalgia is presented. MR imaging was helpful for determining the presence, location and magnitude of intermetatarsal neuroma. Moreover, it had a large influence on the differential diagnostic thinking because many disorders may produce forefoot complaints mimicking Morton's metatarsalgia.
