Thank you for your interest in Case of the Month.
Guidelines for Submitting Video Cases
MDS encourages submissions of video cases at any time by MDS members (online) as well as non-members (see instructions at bottom of this page) . Cases need to demonstrate an interesting, unusual or educational phenomenology.
Format for Submissions
The format requires an initial brief clinical synopsis with a video and questions related to the phenomenology of the movement disorders shown on the video. This should then be followed by more clinical information and 2 or 3 questions related to further issues of the case and a final differential diagnosis. Please supply just one correct answer for each question. The final page should be a brief summary with references. To enhance the educational experience for visitors, please explain the rationale for the final correct answer in each case.
Authors are encouraged to review prior Video Case of the Month postings for content and format (Members Only). If you are not a member and wish to view a sample Video Case of the Month, please email email@example.com.
What happens next?
Once received, cases will be peer reviewed by the Society's Medical Co-Editors, Hubert Fernandez, MD, and Marcelo Merello, MD, PhD, as well as by two other medical reviewers. Please note that case content and format may require revisions. Once finalized the case will be posted as a Case of the Month for exclusive viewing by MDS members and remain archived on the MDS website.
If you have any questions about submitting a case, please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
