Aims and Scope

Grand Rounds is a database of clinical reports of interesting and original findings that present:
  • New clinical features of diseases
  • New surgical complications
  • Unusual presentations
  • Complex cases, which present misleading data
  • Unusual pathological data
  • Unusual images
Historically, significant case reports have possessed the following attributes:
  • Descriptions of new diseases
  • Recognition of the existence and aetiology of new side effects
  • The study of disease mechanisms
  • New therapy and prognosis in a particular condition
  • Education
  • Quality assurance

The purpose of a good case report is to make a point, and our referees will be taking this (as well as the above features) into consideration before making a recommendation to publish or not. Papers which are a reiteration of previously recognised data and which do not have a clear point will be rejected.

Grand Rounds is interested in receiving reports from all clinical specialities and specialities allied to medicine.

Where possible the evidence-based data on the clinical or surgical case will be linked to the report. Thus, people browsing the database can compare and contrast the report to the established evidence.
