Skeletal tracer localization in the rectus abdominis muscle of a 17-year-old girl whose training regimen included vigorous abdominal exercise but who had no abdominal soreness is described. The case illustrates that bone tracers may localize to skeletal muscle without associated symptoms. This is consistent with bone tracer localization in skeletal muscle reflecting subtle fiber abnormalities rather than necrosis.
