Case has one placed in clear folder? (7)

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'case' is the definition.
(a medical case)

'one placed in clear folder?' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'one' could be 'i' (Roman numeral) and 'i' is found within the answer.
'clear' could be 'patent' (synonyms) and 'patent' is located in the leftover letters.
This accounts for all the letters.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

'has' is the link.
