Lee, Shin, Nam, and Choi: Korean Translation of the CARE guidelines
See the Original "".



The aim of this study is to develop the official Korean translation of the CARE guidelines.


CARE guidelines were developed in 2013 though a consensus of experts led by the CARE group. It is the first reporting guideline for case reports that includes a 13-item checklist. We contacted the main author of the original manuscript and obtained permission to develop the Korean translation. The translation process followed a systematic protocol designated by the CARE group which included an independent back translation and confirmation from the original author.


The Korean translation of the CARE guidelines was completed with approval from the original author. The Korean checklist is posted on the official website ( and the final translation of the manuscript is introduced in this article as an appendix.


We hope that this will help introduce the CARE guidelines to Korean authors and other stakeholders, induce a more active use of reporting guidelines, and eventually contribute to the overall improvement of the reporting quality of case reports published in Korean literature.
