About this Research Topic
Case Reports highlight unique cases of patients that present with an unexpected diagnosis, treatment outcome, or clinical course. Only Case Reports that are original and significantly advance the field will be considered. Case Reports must be submitted with a VIDEO PRESENTATION and a DEFINITE DIAGNOSIS (e.g., genetic or laboratory supported).
Case Report format:
Maximum word count: 3,000
Maximum number of display items (figures, tables, or videos): 4.
Minimum number of patients: 2.
- Title: Case Report: “area of focus”
- Introduction: including what is unique about the case and medical literature references.
- Case description: including de-identified patient information, relevant physical examination and other clinical findings, relevant past interventions, and their outcomes.
- A figure or table showcasing a timeline with relevant data from the episode of care.
- Diagnostic assessment, details on the therapeutic intervention, follow-up, and outcomes, as specified in the CARE guidelines.
- Discussion: strengths and limitations of the approach to the case, discussion of the relevant medical literature (similar and contrasting cases), take-away lessons from the case.
- Patient perspective.
Please, note that authors are required to obtain written informed consent from the patients (or their legal representatives) for the publication.
Authors should follow the CARE guidelines (https://www.care-statement.org/) and submit a completed CARE checklist as a supplementary file (template available here: http://data.care-statement.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/CARE-checklist-English-2013.pdf)
IMPORTANT: Any Case Report submitted to the Movement Disorders section outside this collection might experience delays, as they will be sent for assessment to the Specialty Chief Editor prior to beginning the peer review.
It should also be noted that case reports will be accepted only if they provide significant innovative information in the field of movement disorders. Suggestive descriptions without adequate causative evidence will not be considered. Priority will be given to case reports with an accompanying video documentation.
