Case Reports

Research Institute

Case reports are not ‘research’ in the formal sense; therefore, they don’t require Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval. However, before publishing a case report, it is important to let patients know how their medical information will be used and to obtain their written consent for including this information in your manuscript.
