Case discussion offers important opportunities to do good medical ethics, but do we understand what the benefits might be? This paper looks at the ‘Case Conference’ series in the JME, its origins and methods, examines some cases in outline, and reviews issues that arise that are not usually taken into account. Cases are harder to publish now, not least because of ethical constraints. Ways past this apparently paradoxical outcome are suggested.
