Pharmacoepidemiology is a field that focuses on studying the utilization and effects of medications in large populations. It combines principles from epidemiology and pharmacology to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of drugs in real-world settings. One of the essential tools in pharmacoepidemiology is the case report, which plays a crucial role in identifying and understanding adverse drug reactions, drug interactions, and other medication-related issues. In this article, we will explore the significance of case reports in pharmacoepidemiology and how they contribute to the overall understanding of drug safety and effectiveness.
