The practice and study of medicine in Persia has a long and prolific history. The present study examines recorded information on the subject of medicine during the Sassanid period based on Avesta and Pahlavic texts such as Dinkard, Bundahishn, Sad dar Nasr and Sad dar Bundahishn. Moreover, Sassanid medicine was under the influences of neighboring countries such as Egypt and Greece. The Sassanid Empire was the last pre-Islamic Persian dynasty that ruled Persia from 224 CE to 651 CE. In this period Persia witnessed great achievements and progress in medicine as well as in other sciences.
