There are a number of case reports in my publication history and I had the one or the other conversation with colleagues why to publish case reports. Case reports are not an essential step in someone’s career and are more or less a waste of time, is the main argument I was “accused” for. I disagree with this argument and I would like to explain why in this short editorial.
