Case narratives depict personal memoirs of physicians, illustrations of disease and therapy, and are comprised of two narrative elements: patients' bodies and their biographies. In this chapter, the themes and forms of case narratives and the significance of their central place in medical epistemology are examined. The chapter also presents the narratives of four physicians: Dr. A.A. Patteson, Dr. Bennet Dowler, Dr. Lunsford Yandell, and Dr. John Young Bassett.

Keywords:   case narratives, memoirs, physicians, A.A. Patteson, Bennet Dowler, Lunsford Yandell, John Young Bassett
