Morton\'s neuroma is a common cause of forefoot pain. It most commonly affects middle-aged females and involves the third web space. A thorough history and examination should be adequate to diagnose with ultrasound (US) being the investigation of choice. Treatment usually involves conservative measures including analgesia; footwear and orthotic; local steroid injection; and in cases of failed nonoperative measures, open excision is performed.
