Tips for Writing, Submitting and Presenting a Case
The AMSSM membership enjoys lively discussion regarding the presentation and work-up of interesting cases. These are some tips that can enhance the quality of your write up and ensure a successful case presentation at the AMSSM Annual Meeting.

In choosing to submit a case for consideration for presentation, you should be prepared to defend your workup and your management decisions, particularly if you are presenting new or controversial management protocols. Constructive criticism from both the panel and the floor are expected. Criticism should not be taken as a personal affront by the presenter. While the presenter is discouraged from lecturing on the topic; he/she is expected to have attained a reasonable degree of expertise through the clinical care provided and the research performed in preparation of the presentation; therefore he/she is encouraged to answer questions from the panel/audience and actively participate in the discussion.

Writing a Case

  • Check your grammar and spelling carefully, as this may affect your review.
  • Follow the space guidelines. In general, the fewer words you can use to write the case, the better.
  • Leave spaces to make your case readable, which may increase the likelihood of a positive review.
  • Allow the case to “unfold” as it did when the case first presented to you.
  • Be sure to include up to five separate differential diagnoses.
  • DO NOT include your final working diagnosis in the title! Diagnosis in the title may exclude your case from evaluation and/or lead to alteration of the title.
  • Cases of particular interest include: controversial cases, common problems with uncommon presentation, uncommon problems with common presentation, or illustrative cases of common problems. The abstract should identify the history, physical exam, five differential diagnoses. The abstract should outline the Tests & Results (Lab, X-ray, etc.), Final Working Diagnosis, Discussion, Outcome and Return to Activity/Follow-up. Abstracts will receive a blind review. There are some helpful tips when writing, submitting and presenting your case abstract on the main abstract submission page. You will be notified of the acceptance/rejection of your abstract in February 2017.
