Among the brilliant contributors to the sciences of medicine, pharmacy, and chemstry during the Iranian era was one genius who seems to stand for his time- the Persian, Razi, (about 865-925 AD), called Rhazes by the western world.
The most important authorship of Razi is the "contines" (Alhavi) that in fact, it is a medical encyclopedia and there is the describtion of all the illnesses, the way of cure and the ideas of pioneer from Hormos mesri (Egypt) to the contemporary one was "Abubakr Raqqi".
One of the features of Razi is that at first, he declared the pervious scientist's ideas and after in necessities, he accepted some ideas or he refused some ideas. At last he declared his idea.
By reading carefully, 23 volume "contines" including of the name of 102 physicians and 282 books that Razi red and used, have extracted.
The name of 20 physicians and 42 books didn't declare in any of history of medical books such as "History of science by George Sarton”, fehrest Ibn- Nadim" "Oyun-Al-Anba by IBN-AB-Osaybia"…And "Tarikh- alhokama Qefti". Some of the unknown physicians were Iranian and living in Sasanian's era and before Islam's time.

I will describe the number of volumes and pages from the Razi's book "contines" that involved paragraph that have with these scientists.
