Abstract

Uptake of technetium-99m methylene diphosphonate by the rectus abdominis muscle was unexpectedly found in a 29 year old man who had started to perform 30 to 40 sit ups a day for five days before the bone scan. After a week of rest, serum creatine kinase activity was still abnormal but muscle uptake of technetium-99m methylene diphosphonate had ceased. This specific muscle injury after short term sit ups as well as the resolution of the phenomenon within a week are of interest.
