The purpose of a good case report is to make a point, and our referees will be taking this (as well as the above features) into consideration before making a recommendation to publish or not. Papers which are a reiteration of previously recognised data and which do not have a clear point will be rejected.
Grand Rounds is interested in receiving reports from all clinical specialities and specialities allied to medicine.
Where possible the evidence-based data on the clinical or surgical case will be linked to the report. Thus, people browsing the database can compare and contrast the report to the established evidence.
