[From the text]: Over at least the past decade there has been a new appreciation of the value of the case study. It is the purpose of this chapter to outline the basic principles through which systematic in-depth description and analysis of individual cases contribute to the development of clinical theory and practice. When these principles are understood, readers will see that this method has a central place in the development of systematic and valid scientific knowledge.
