The journal Case Reports in Perinatal Medicine provides practitioners in clinical practice with exemplary reports of cases that reveal specific manifestations of diseases, its progress or its treatment.

Continuous readers’ interest and significant relevance of case reports inspired the Editors and Publishers of the Journal of Perinatal Medicine to found this new journal.

The aims & scope of the new journal are very similar to those of JPM; both journals publish interdisciplinary, innovative, evidenced-based and basic science research that is both informative and useful for daily clinical practice, and both journals aim to be beneficial for future challenges.
