Lateral Plantar Pain: Diagnostic Considerations
Injuries that target the bones of the midfoot are important causes of pain. The medial aspect of the midfoot has been extensively studied but the lateral plantar region has not received as much attention. The objective of this article is to review the differential diagnosis of lateral plantar pain, emphasizing on the common mechanisms of injury, and to identify characteristic imaging findings for these pathologic conditions.
