BMJ Case Reports provides access to cases in all disciplines so that healthcare professionals, researchers and others can easily find clinically important information on common and rare conditions. All articles are peer reviewed and copy edited before publication. BMJ Case Reports provides the oppurtunity to learn from real cases as the cases that are published are worthy of discussion, particularly around aspects of differential diagnosis, decision making, management, clinical guidelines and pathology.
