I just remember Sattar saying MVP tends to be asymptomatic. Also, I think the kid complained specifically of coughing, and that made me really lean away from MVP.

I choose MVP too, but this patient’s main symptom is cough only during exercise. This is more indicative of exercised associated asthma. You could see shortness of breath in MVP during exercise, but choosing MVP leaves the cough unaccounted for.
