Thematic series on case reports from the H1N1 influenza pandemic


Journal of Medical Case Reports is seeking submissions of case reports from the H1N1 influenza pandemic
to be part of our new article series. This thematic
series, edited by Associate Editor, Professor Viroj Wiwanitkit, features case reports which provide important clinical information on
complications arising from H1N1 infection. With treatment recommendations and
clinical outcomes included in each case report, the series can serve as an
important resource for doctors to gain a better understanding on various
H1N1-related complications around the world.

The collection features a case report by Urso et al. describing a rare occurrence of skin
lesions due to inflammation of the blood vessels associated with H1N1
infection. In addition, Willekens et al. report an uncommon case of macrophage activation syndrome (in which
cells of the immune system start destroying other blood cells) induced by the
H1N1 virus and Chan et al. report the cases of two pregnant women who caught H1N1 and developed myocarditis
i.e. inflammation of the heart muscles.

To find out more or to submit your manuscript
on H1N1, please visit our website

forward to receiving your contributions.
