Authors should use the following subheadings to divide the sections of their manuscript: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion. The introduction section is not provided in case reports. Considering the abundance of the figures in the case reports, the tables and figures should be submitted separately. There should be no space after the parenthesis. The routine lab test words could be used abbreviated.


The source of financial grants and other funding must be acknowledged, including a frank declaration of the authors' industrial links and affiliations. The contribution of colleagues or institutions should also be acknowledged. Personal thanks and thanks to anonymous reviewers are not appropriate.

The Vancouver system of referencing should be used (examples are given below). In the text, references should be cited with parentheses and should appear in front of the full point or comma at the end of the sentence/clauses should be superscript. References should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they appear in the text. If cited in tables or figure legends, number according to the first identification of the table or figure in the text. We recommend the use of a tool such as Endnote or Reference Manager for reference management and formatting.

All illustrations (line drawings and photographs) are classified as figures. Figures should be cited in consecutive order in the text.
