Messages from clinical cases are not neglected: the first description of ulcerative colitis was a case report, after all! However, publications need to have a dimension beyond clinical associations, to give an insight into the pathogenesis of the condition or management dilemmas. Recent examples include the gastrointestinal consequences of mitochondrial myopathy and rearrangements in mitochondrial DNA, mesenteric vein thrombosis in colitis, obstructing Bochdalek hernia, patent foramen ovale and mesenteric infarction, the outcomes from intestinal transplantation, early gastric cancer, gastric cancer in common variable immunodeficiency, and orbital myositis in Crohn’s disease (publications).
