Morton's neuroma. Update on diagnosis and imaging

Clin Podiatr Med Surg. 1997 Apr;14(2):303-11.


The diagnosis of Morton's neuroma is usually made from evaluation of a patient's subjective complaints, clinical findings, and exclusion of other differential diagnoses. Occasionally, when other neurological conditions exist or when the clinical findings are atypical, various imaging techniques may be helpful in the diagnosis of interdigital neuromas. This article will discuss these techniques and briefly review this common lower extremity disorder.
