JOCR is a wonderful Journal and it has given immense opportunities to thousands of the Indian Orthopaedicians to share their single cases with the public. A big Thanx to JOCR and its mentor Dr. Ashok Shyam.

Commentary by Authors
The Journal of orthopedic case reports is a new and important new journal that emphasizes the importance of evaluation and management of rare orthopedic pathologies. With the increasing value placed on prospective randomized controlled trials, there has been unfortunately a loss of focus regarding the importance of case reports. Many journals have moved away from publishing case reports. I commend this journal for recognizing the importance of case reports to the fund of knowledge within orthopedics.

Commentary by Authors
I thank JOCR for selecting “Idiopathic Bilateral Gluteus Maximus Contracture in Adolescent Female: A Case Report”as the Best Article For the Year 2013. We feel elated as well as humbled,as lots of effort goes in converting an idea, hypothesis or observation into an article. Dr Ashok Shyam and his team is doing a commendable job by bringing all these observations and ideas to fore by publishing them in the journal. As one of the editorial stated that a single observation can change the paradigm,a single observation can also broaden the horizon. I again thank JOCR for broadening the horizon, stimulating our mind and making all of us think beyond common.
