“We know from our clinical experience in the practice of medicine that in diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment, the individual, his background of heredity are just as important, if not more so, as the disease itself”

Send us cases seen and studied by you in the premises of your own institution during ward rounds or OPD postings which demonstrate either rare conditions, unique patients, ingenious treatments or are emotionally stirring.
