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

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A fit and apparently healthy male patient presents with symptoms and clinical signs consistent with a Mortons'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 diagnosis which should be considered during the assessment process and is therefore, highly pertinent to clinicians.
