Caseecontrol studies are a very frequently used restudy design in clinical and epidemio- logical research. They are popular because they are easy, quick and inexpensive to plan and conduct. Despite the risk of several types of biases (selection bias, recall and mea- surement bias, and confounding), their results are often fairly robust. This article explains the basic steps in the design and conduct of caseecontrol studies, and also explains their usual pitfalls, from the perspective of a clinical researcher.
