Case reports have been a method of scientific communication in the medical literature. Cases describing a clinical challenge faced by physicians and providing well-reasoned recommendations serve an important function in the clinical practice. Other values of case reports include generating clinical hypotheses and promoting scholarly education. They enhance critical thinking for practicing physicians, residents, and medical students. A case report can raise conceptual questions about particular clinical observation with the goal to generate a clinical hypothesis. This article highlights the value of case reports and describes their role in advancement of medicine with the intent to increase and improve case reporting.

Between 2010-2014, Fundacion Huesped and the Youth for Health Network implemented a sexuality education program, dance4life, in public schools in Argentina. A process evaluation was conducted in 2014 to assess the implementation of the program between 2010 and 2013, and make preliminary assessments of the impact on youth sexual and reproductive health.
EPCs (Endothelial progenitor cells) are the precursors of endothelial cells that form the inner lining of blood vessels and are involved in neovascularization and re-endothelializaton of injured tissues. These cells have the potential for treating a multitude of angiogenic disorders giving a new hope in the arena of vascular biology. In the present study, we have demonstrated that cord blood derived expanded CD34+ cells can be differentiated into functional EPCs in vitro.
Headaches Prevalence in Childhood and Adolescence at Pediatric Neurology Service in Salvador - Brazil
Headache is among the main pediatric symptom and the physicians should meet the diagnostic criteria of the International Headache Society. In a cross-sectional study, during August 2015 to August 2016, the types of headaches and the sociodemographic profile of patients between 4 and 18 years of age were evaluated. The headache patients were previously diagnosed and followed at the Pediatric Neurology Service of Salvador, according to established criteria. The study was approved by Research Ethics Committee and it was carried out with the application of a specific questionnaire. In the overall study population (N = 58) were detected: primary headache migraine type that incapacitated the daily activities in 34/58 (58.6%) and the socioeconomic profile showed the family income below two salaries (in Real currency) in 38/58 (65.5%) of the population. As observed in adults, the headaches constitute a disabling diagnosis and it is impactful in the development of activities of daily living in the age group of this study, corroborating the literature on the importance of early diagnosis and therapy.
