Introduction: currently, case reports are an important teaching tool with practical applications and contribute to the expansion of knowledge of health professionals. Objective: to review the methodology of developing case reports, showing similarities and differences in format and content criteria that are requested for case reports to be published. Methodology: literature review in PubMed and Scielo between 2005-2015 and manual tracing of the most relevant references of selected articles. Inclusion criteria: original articles / literature reviews in English / Spanish / Portuguese published in any country and include guidelines or recommendations for the drafting of clinical cases. Results: we found 131 articles, 20 met the inclusion criteria, adding 5 articles by manually tracing. The variables were described: objective, conclusions and recommendations presented in 3 tables; 1. International guide publication; 2. International journals and 3. Latin American journals. Discussion: there are international benchmarks that provide when required to write and publish a case report very specific guidelines. Both international benchmarks analyzed the recommendations are consistent in their usefulness but there is no standardization in its methodology. Very few guidelines mentioned include dietary management, monitoring and evolution in the clinical situation.
