In partnership with Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, one of the leading journals in clinical ophthalmology, this collection aims to publish reports on interesting and unexpected cases in the entire range of ophthalmology. Preference is given to case reports that shed new light on the pathogenesis, diagnosis or treatment of ophthalmic conditions. We hope the findings shared here will help in developing research in the field of ophthalmology.

This article collection is published in Journal of Medical Case Reports.
