Answer

Interdigital neuritis—also referred to as Morton neuroma, [6] interdigital neuroma, Morton metatarsalgia, or interdigital nerve compression—results from entrapment of a plantar interdigital nerve as it passes under the transverse metatarsal ligament. [7] It is defined as a perineural fibrosis of the involved interdigital nerves, and true neuromatous involvement is not seen.
