Clinical and Medical Case Reports
A case report signifies the detailed report of symptoms, signs, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of an individual patient. Case reports are a time-honoured, important, integral, and accepted part of the medical literature. Case reports may contain a demographic profile of the patient, but usually describe an unusual or novel occurrence. Case reports have been playing a pivotal role in medical education, providing a structure for case-based learning and implementation. A case report describes unique aspects of a medical or surgical case and provides clear clinical and educational significance in medicine given its rapid contributions to scientific literature and clinical practice. Despite the emphasis on randomized clinical trials, evidenced-based medicine, systemic reviews and meta-analyses, case reports continue to provide a novel and exceptional knowledge in medical education.
