A 15-year-old boy presented with pain and motor weakness in the right leg. Ten months earlier, he had complained of gradually worsening pain in the right lower leg that was exacerbated by walking and standing. He was unable to walk more than 100 m and experienced intermittent claudication. He had a history of playing the drum every day for some years, and used his right foot to operate the bass drum during these sessions.
