Morton’s neuroma

neuroma-di-morton-1

Morton’s Neuroma is a neuropathy consisting of a swelling of a nerve in the foot located between the third and fourth toes. The condition is named after the American surgeon Thomas George Morton, who first diagnosed it in the 1800s. Neuroma, with the passage of time, can lead to the development of fibrous scar tissue around the nerve affected by the disorder because of the continuous friction of the adjacent metatarsal bones and deep intermetatarsal ligament, which, at the level of the third space, are more mobile than in other parts of the foot. Although the condition can occur at all ages, it mostly affects women between 40 and 50 years old.
