Informed consent

People who are reported in studies have a right to privacy that should not be violated without informed consent. Identifying information, including names, initials, dates of birth or hospital numbers, should not be published in written descriptions, photographs or pedigrees unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the person (or parent or guardian) gives written informed consent for publication.

Informed consent for this purpose requires that an identifiable person be shown the manuscript to be submitted for publication. Authors should disclose to these participants whether any potential identifiable material might be available via the internet or in print after publication.

Each implicated individual’s consent should be written and archived with the authors. If the patient is a minor or lacks capacity to consent, the written informed consent of a parent or guardian must be given. If the person in the case study is deceased, written consent must be sought from a relative. Without consent, a case report may be considered for publication if the patient is sufficiently anonymised according to ICMJE guidelines. Nonessential identifying details should always be omitted. Informed consent should be obtained if there is any doubt that anonymity can be maintained. For example, masking the eye region in photographs of patients is inadequate protection of anonymity.

Consent must be mentioned in the manuscript. We reserve the right to request copies of consent documentation. The Editor will make the final determination of what constitutes personally identifiable information on a case-by-case basis.
