Description: Interdigital neuritis is a mechanically induced nerve irritation due to intrinsic and extrinsic biomechanical factors that results in a combination of pain, paresthesias, or numbness in the forefoot. A greater understanding of forefoot anatomy and biomechanics has created an environment to further delineate the pathophysiology of interdigital neuroma.
