What causes pain in the peroneus brevis?

Peroneal tendonitis occurs when the peroneal tendons become inflamed. This happens when there is an increased load and overuse of the tendons, leading to them rubbing on the bone. This friction causes the tendons to swell.

What happens if the fibularis brevis tendon ruptures?

If the tendon of fibularis brevis ruptures, it can also cause an avulsion fracture of the fifth metatarsal tuberosity.
