Conference attendees are invited to submit interesting and perplexing clinical cases for discussion by master clinicians. These should be submitted in the same format as Abstracts, and indicated they are for this session. These abstracts should have the pertinent details of the cases, and if it is wished to present the cases as "unknowns" (which usually makes for a more interesting discussion), you should, in a separate last paragraph, reveal the diagnosis. That last paragraph, whose length will not count against word and space restrictions for abstracts, will not be shared with the Professors to be "stumped" and will not appear in the abstract book; its purpose is to assist the Scientific Committee in selecting cases of interest. If presented as an unknown, your abstract title should not reveal the diagnosis.
If your case is selected for this session, your rewards will be enhancing the pleasurable experience of the meeting overall, presenting the case from the podium at the session, publication of the abstract with your name in the programme, possibly publication of the case report in the supplement, a full refund of your registration fee (or an equivalent cash amount in some cases), and a free ticket to the social event (or refund if you have already paid). Applicants for scholarships and submitters of other abstracts are fully welcomed to participate in this session as well.
