About Medicine Case Reports
A case report is a detailed description of observations which are evidence based. In medicine, a case report is a detailed report of the symptoms, signs, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of an individual patient. Case reports may contain a demographic profile of the patient, but usually describe an unusual or novel occurrence. Regardless, case reports do have genuinely useful roles in medical research and evidence-based medicine. In particular, they have facilitated recognition of new diseases and adverse effects of treatments. They also help understanding the clinical spectrum of rare diseases, as well as unusual presentations of common diseases. They can help generate conceivable mechanisms of disease.
