Abstract: Young trumpet players are predisposed to certain performance-related health risks. Nevertheless, the published experience with specific disorders is considered confusing and anecdotal. In the context of a review of the literature, we analyze a case report of a young patient who presented with two different disorders typically related to trumpet playing. After considering the diagnoses that had been made elsewhere, we were able to make the correct diagnoses and choose the correct treatment. We conclude that physicians need to be aware of these disorders, because they could be mistakenly attributed to instrumental performance itself or misinterpreted as serious conditions that require medical intervention.
