Morton’s neuroma and rheumatoid arthritis

All patients of Morton’s neuroma should be checked for other musculoskeletal conditions (such as rheumatoid arthritis and rheumatoid nodules). According to a recent study(1), about 5% of the patients who presents with symptoms of Morton’s neuroma are later diagnosed with a rheumatoid nodule. Rheumatoid nodules may co-exist with Morton’s neuroma.
