The foot is increasingly the focus of attention for rheumatologists when assessing patients presenting to a clinic and may represent underlying intra-articular inflammatory pathology or involvement of the surrounding soft tissues. This study describes the correlation between clinical and ultrasound (US) findings in patients presenting with a variety of rheumatic disorders linked with foot pain. Poor correlation was found between conventional clinical examination and US in cases with joint inflammation, tendonitis and, more particularly, those cases with enthesopathy.
