Ibn Sina is regarded as one of the greatest physicians, thinkers and medical scholars in the history of medicine. Ibn Sina, a Persian scholar in the medieval era, wrote a famous book of medicine, the Canon of Medicine. The book was adopted as the main textbook of medicine in most Western and Persian universities. In the present critique, we analyzed the functional and anatomic descriptions of the heart, airways and the lungs as viewed by Ibn Sina in volume three of the Canon of Medicine textbook, and compared them to modern anatomy texts. © 2009 by Academy of Medical Sciences of the I.R.
