Dear Authors,
a large number of reviewers in Europe and particularly in Italy, are clinicians: their commitment in the current public health emergency is aimed at helping and treating people. Our greatest thanks go to them.

We renew our commitment to guarantee you the peer-review process of your papers submitted to the Journal as soon as possible and we are confident we have your understanding for possible small delays.

Moreover, considering the extremely high number of case reports submitted this year, which far exceeds the maximum acceptable number for the journal, the submission of papers in this section is temporarily suspended until January 2021.
