Often overlooked in the differential diagnosis of heel pain is neuroma of the medial calcaneal branch of the posterior tibial nerve. Heel neuroma is an important disorder of the foot that has been misdiagnosed by physicians since the early 1900s as heel spur syndrome. The authors show how heel pain rarely has anything to do with calcaneal exostosis, but instead could be related to heel neuroma.
