In medical history most of scientific articles have been done in form of case reports: the first description of melanoma was done by Norris in 1820, who reported the history of a patient referred as a case of “fungoid disease”; Christian Barnard described the world’s first heart transplant as a case report, and many examples could be done.
Case reports consist of information about symptoms, signs, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of an individual patient or of a little series of patients, usually with description of a typical or new occurrence.
