According to APA, case studies do not have their own citation style or process, instead a case study is typically cited as a journal article. See below for some examples.

Journal Article with DOI (Print or Electronic)

Author Last Name, First Initial. Second Initial.(Year). Title of article. Journal Title, Volume Number(Issue Number), Page Numbers. http://dx.doi.org/xx.xxxxxxx.xx.x

Wheeler, B. J., & Taylor, B. J. (2012). Successful management of allergy to the insulin excipient metacresol in a child with type 1 diabetes: a case report. Journal Of Medical Case Reports6(1), 263-266. http://dx.doi.org/10.1186/1752-1947-6-263

Journal Article Without a DOI from a Library Database

Author Last Name, First Initial. Second Initial., & Author Last Name, First Initial. Second Initial. (Year). Title of article. Journal Title, Volume Number(Issue Number), Page Numbers. Retrieved from http://URL for journal publisher's home page

** In an APA reference, the second and any subsequent lines should be indented a half inch (this is difficult to do within this Answers/FAQ system, so you will not see it in the reference examples above).
