The authors present a rare case of multiple intermetatarsal neuromas coexisting with rheumatoid synovitis and a rheumatoid nodule. A brief review of rheumatoid nodules as a source of forefoot pain and a review of the relevant literature are provided. A rheumatoid nodule is just one of the many diagnoses that must be considered when one encounters pedal symptoms similar to those associated with Morton's neuroma.
