For most authors, the case report is the first piece of research writing. This editorial discusses the essential components of a case report to guide authors to improve their writing skills and thus avoid the disappointments of rejection. The sections of the case report are the title, abstract with keywords, introduction, case description, discussion with conclusions and references. The case report should be clear, concise, coherent, and must convey a crisp message. Common pitfalls and mistakes will be discussed.
