The main purpose of a case report is to educate clinicians about the clinical features, investigation, and/or the treatment of patients with unusual problems. It is important to remember that all the rules that apply to other forms of medical writing, also apply equally to case reports. The IMRAD format ( introduction, methods, results, and discussion) that one sees in reports of clinical research might not always be appropriate for case reports. Article of case report usually contain a title, authorship, introduction, case description, discussion, references, and acknowledgements. Author decision between submitting to a general, specialist, or even subspecialty journal will depend on the rarity of the case and its specific features. Keep in mind the basic reason for writing a case report: namely, that it should have a message for the reader. It consider who the message is aimed at, and then select a journal whose readership will include the target audience.
