Author's Comments:
This case is not a diagnostic dilemma but does highlight the importance of the pre-participation physical exam as more than a "safe to participate" evaluation.

Editor's Comments:
This case underscores the importance of performing a good physical exam. It also demonstrates that as primary care sports medicine physicians we always need to provide comprehensive care for our patients.
