The Association of Vision Science Librarians Website, under the Resources tab, has a list of Medline-indexed vision journals which publish case reports (yes, including JPOS).

The New England Journal of Medicine's 'clinical images' feature may be the model for these brief reports; some of the JAMA journals include image-based quizzes. 

There is also the 'case report' filter in PubMed, which can be used to identify journals which publish case reports in the general medical area in question.

> An MD called to ask me where he could publish a case study on a disease called Emphysematous cystitis He has a few CT scans of the condition and would like to know where he could publish this in possibly a journal that runs a series on 'what's the diagnosis?"  Perhaps 'pictures in medicine'. I have seen this kind of article but cannot think where they would appear. He would of course prefer it be a higher impact journal Are there journals that publish case studies exclusively? I didn't know of any I did run him an impact factor listing for Emergency medicine and Urology since he is an ED doc and the condition is urologic Thanks for your input Janice
