The paper is devoted to the Lamb shift and fine structure in a hydrogenlike muonic atom with a spinless nucleus up to the order alpha(5)m with all the recoil corrections included. Enhanced contributions of a higher order are also considered. We present the results on the pure QED contribution and on the finite-nuclear-size contribution, proportional to R-N(2), with the higher-order corrections included. We also consider the consistency of the pure QED theory and the evaluation of the nuclear-structure effects. Most of the QED theory is the same as the theory for the case of the nuclear spin 1/2. Additional nuclear-spin-dependent terms are considered in detail. The issue of the difference for the theories with a spinor nucleus and a scalar one is discussed for the recoil contributions in the order (Z alpha)(4)m, alpha(Z alpha)(4)m, and(Z alpha)(5)m. The numerical results are presented for the muonic atoms with two lightest scalar nuclei, helium-4 and beryllium-10. We compare the theory of those muonic atoms with theory for the muonic hydrogen. Some higher-order finite-nuclear-size corrections for the Lamb shift in muonic hydrogen are revisited.
