Please submit your most interesting clinical and laboratory cases for consideration by sending a brief outline of the case (including clinical presentation, investigations, diagnosis and treatment) and a short discussion on the instructive value of the case (about 200 words). Please clearly identify the take-home message that you would like your case to illustrate. Please include two or three multiple-choice questions that would be suitable for the “clicker” audience response system. We like a variety of cases; they can be lengthy and complicated or quick and short – you decide what you think might be of interest and of educational value for the audience.

The deadline for submission of clinical cases is November 29, 2015.

Cases must be submitted by email to both Dr. Michael Libman, and Dr. Caroline Quach,

DO NOT submit the cases through the regular abstract submission process.
