The question is "best classify a Morton's neuroma"

The question is not "what are the eitologies that may give rise to neuroma symptoms".

A neuroma is a thickening of the perineural envelope which is the true definition of a Morton's neuroma. An adevenitious bursae can compress on the common digital nerve giving rise to "neuroma" type symptoms, however it is not a mortons neuroma.
