Schwannoma of the superficial peroneal nerve presenting as web space pain.J Foot Ankle Surg. 1995 Nov-Dec; 34(6):532-3.JF
A 55-year-old male presented complaining of pain at his right fourth toe and dorsal fourth web space. Physical examination findings pointed to a lesion affecting the superficial peroneal nerve. A schwannoma of the superficial peroneal nerve was subsequently excised, relieving the patient's symptoms. In the differential diagnosis of nontraumatic and/or nonarthritic toe and foot pain, benign tumors, including schwannomas of the tibial and peroneal nerves, should be considered.
