Answer

Interdigital neuritis is most common in the second or third interspace, but occurrences in the first and fourth interspace have been reported; double neuromas occurring in the second and third interspace are not uncommon. This condition is more common in women than in men. Although it can occur in persons of all ages, it is most common in middle-aged individuals.
