 Katie Traylor, Jessica Wen, and Gennaro D’Anna

Submit cases by e-mail to

Cases need to be interesting and educational. Case acceptance is based upon the discretion of the Case Editors. After all Case Editors have reviewed a case, a decision e-mail will be sent.


  • Anyone who submits a case must consult his or her institutional policies on posting cases to social media.
  • Authors submitting cases acknowledge that submitted images have not been previously published. The submitted images cannot be “owned” by another entity or journal.
  • No identifiable data such as demographic information or hospital identity numbers should be on the images.
  • An approximate age should be used in the case vignette to minimize possibility of identification.
  • Avoid posting rare cases as a rare diagnosis may be enough for a patient to be identified.
    • Exception: Obtain written patient consent in these cases.
  • Should be only radiology and pathology images, no clinical images
  • No medical legal cases or those that have a potential of becoming a medical legal case. i.e. any cases in which the treating physician may be sued or abusive pediatric head trauma cases.
