Morton's neuromas, though usually diagnosed clinically, can occasionally be problematic. When required, imaging may be performed via ultrasound or computed tomography, though the former can be quite operator-dependent, and the latter exposes the patient to ionizing radiation. Magnetic resonance imaging can be very helpful in certain clinical situations. This case report demonstrates the usefulness of gadopentetate-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging with fat saturation in the evaluation of interdigital neuromas.
