The diagnosis should be known or the workup as complete as possible (all evidence as to the diagnosis should be included); 3. There should be a brief review of the literature including numbers of patients with similar findings/outcomes, risk factors, how it has been evaluated/treated, and outcomes where known; 4. The case should include as much follow-up as is available; 5. Pathology slides and supporting evidence should be included. Here is a good reference for putting together a case report.
