© 2015 Elsevier Ltd. Case series, while considered low on the research hierarchy, have been a valuable method of informing medical practice for as long as medicine has been practised. Case reports can generate hypotheses, uncover original observations, novel diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, unusual, new or uncommon diseases and complications of medical treatment. Despite their importance, and contemporary trends supporting their further use, publishing case series can be a difficult task for many clinicians and researchers.

This article describes practical and academic insights into writing a case series for publication.
