Summary

Objective: To describe the bibliometric profile of Tunisian "case report" publications in general surgery over the last thirty years (1989-2018).

Methods: This is a descriptive bibliometric study on "case reports", general surgery, Tunisian affiliation, indexed in the Medline database, between January 1, 1989 and December 31, 2018. The themes of Search articles were defined by referring to their major keywords used for their indexing.

Results: During 30 years of study, Medline indexed 188 papers in "General Surgery" type "case reports", signed by 80 authors in first position and 71 authors in last position, belonging to ten academic specialties and 19 professional affiliations. These papers were published by 60 journals, including the Ugandan magazine “Pan African Medical Journal”, which published 23% of these "case reports" alone. The number of major indexing keywords was 299 words, mainly "Echinococcosis", "Pancreatic Cancers" and "Echinococcosis of the liver", together accounting for 18.1% of articles. Conclusion: The plethora of "case reports" in Tunisian general surgery publications over the last three decades was accompanied by a preferential edition in the journal "Pan Afr Med J" and a thematic focus on hydatid cysts and cancers pancreatic. Hence the importance of strengthening the capacity of Tunisian surgeons in research methodology and scientific medical writing.
