Abstract

A highly motivated 18-year-old man continued vigorous military training in spite of the presence of 11 stress fractures and subsequently developed two additional stress fractures. Scintigraphy over 27 weeks illustrated simultaneous regression and progression in his individual multiple foci. When stress fracture foci were not in anatomic locations prone to evolve to gross fractures, healing occurred despite vigorous activities and pain.
