 PURPOSE: The purpose of the case study presentations at the TPS 11th Annual Scientific Meeting is strictly educational. Case studies should detail a particular clinical case, describe the clinical background of the patient and address any relevant evidence the physician discovered. They should discuss investigations undertaken in order to determine a diagnosis or differentiate between possible diagnoses and should indicate the course of treatment the patient underwent as a result. As a whole, your case study should be an informative and useful part of every physician's medical education, both during training and on a continuing basis.REQUIREMENTS: Case studies should be those of relevant topics on pain. These will be reviewed according to content, originality, the literature review, style and organization.
