More About Case Reports

"Case reports are solely descriptions of practice, and they can generate ideas, hypotheses, and techniques that can be tested or studied later through controlled experiments.  A case report can serve more than one purpose; it might convey experiences to other clinicians while revealing hypotheses for future research, or it might provide material for teaching and learning while assisting in the evolution of theory.  It might persuade or motivate other practitioners, or help develop practice guidelines and critical pathways."
