I would to use the normal small caps with the item in description in order to distinguish lower from upper case (e.g. LaTeX).

In particular:

\begin{description}
\item[I cAn't DiStiNguISH upPeR fROm LoWeR cASe] description1
\item[AlSo HeRe] description2
\end{description}

I would something like the normal small caps \textsc{YeS I LiKe It!}

I have seen this question but it doesn't help me.

Edit: I use the package classicthesis

  • With enumitem, @lockstep's answer produces the default small caps.

Something like this?

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}

\begin{description}[font=\normalfont\scshape]
\item[I cAn't DiStiNguISH upPeR fROm LoWeR cASe] description1
\item[AlSo HeRe] description2
\end{description}

\end{document}

enter image description here

EDIT: Here's a solution for classicthesis:

\documentclass{scrbook}

\usepackage{classicthesis}

% \renewcommand{\descriptionlabel}[1]{\hspace*{\labelsep}\spacedlowsmallcaps{#1}}% OLD
\renewcommand{\descriptionlabel}[1]{\hspace*{\labelsep}\textsc{#1}}% NEW

\begin{document}

\begin{description}
\item[I cAn't DiStiNguISH upPeR fROm LoWeR cASe] description1
\item[AlSo HeRe] description2
\end{description}

\end{document}
