We aimed to present the main points of view regarding the importance, meaning, and barriers of consent for publishing under the comprehensive protection of patients' rights within this genre. We encourage Latin American editors and authors of rheumatology journals to adopt the best ethical practices in the field, avoiding security and legal liabilities from a regional perspective.
