Default diagnostic workup

Is it possible that the case may not required any workup study like simple colic in infant or simple lumbar muscle strain ...etc
or we need to put workup regardless how simple the case was?
I am asking this question because in usmle.org they said if you feel the case don't need any workup don't leave the box empty in pn but instead write no workup required.
Any input is highly appreciated.

Workup depends on your differential. So, in an infant with simple colic you would like to rule out Intussusception for which you have to do WU.
However, in rare cases when no WU is required, do not leave the box empty and write "no workup required".
