Abstract (Structured abstract. Word count: 250)

Objectives: To present what is unique and important point to concern.

Study design: Case report

Setting: Hospital, province, country

Subject: Describe patient’s demographic data.

Methods: Review patient’s medical records, etc.

Results:  Describe important clinical findings, diagnosis, intervention and outcomes.

Conclusions: One or more “take-away” lessons

Keywords: 3-5 relevant keywords, small letters, separate with comma, no abbreviation. MeSH preferred (search from MeSH browser). Examples: paraplegia, atrial myxoma, embolism

 

Introduction

              Briefly summarize why this case is unique with medical literature references. Reference numbers cited in the text should be superscribed after a comma and after a period at the end of the sentence. Examples:

              Sepsis from pressure sores was found to be the most common cause of death among SCI patients.1

              Kuptniratsaikul, et al2 reported that ......…..

 

Case presentation

              Describe patient’s medical/family/social information, clinical findings, timeline; diagnostic assessment, therapeutic intervention (if relevant); and follow-up and outcomes. Patient’s perspective can be presented in the manuscript. No patient’s name/identification. A separate file of patients’ informed consent for presenting patient’s face should be uploaded as when submitting the manuscript. Informed consent is not needed for dead case.

              Table No vertical border/line, present only horizontal lines.

              Figure Picture of patient and X-ray should be clear with an arrow/asterisk indicating an important finding, if necessary. Patient’s face can be presented if having informed consent.

              Tables and Figures up to 3 in total, inserted in the manuscript.

Discussion

                Discuss relevant medical literature including a brief review of similar published cases, strengths and limitation of your approach in this case, rationale for your conclusions, and the primary “take-away” lessons from this case report.
