A case report is generally considered a type of anecdotal evidence. Nevertheless, case reports do have genuinely useful roles in medical research and evidence-based medicine. In particular, they have facilitated recognition of new diseases and adverse effects of treatments. Case reports can also play a relevant role in medical education, providing a structure for case-based learning.
