Abstract: 

Background: Seyyed Esmaeil Jorjani is one of the most prominent pioneers and scientists of Islamic and Iranian traditional medicine in the 11th and 12th centuries (4th and 5th centuries A.H.). The number of his books is not certainly clear, but it is signified that he has written a couple of great books concerning medicine for Persians and too many treatises in such fields as philosophy, theology, medical ethics, human anatomy, chemistry, pharmacy and other sciences. His most famous and important book is "Zakhireh Khwarazmshahi" or "The Treasure of King Khwarazm", which is really a complete and valuable medical encyclopedia in Persian language.
Objectives: In the present study, authors have attempted to state the life and time of Jorjani and his views by studying the history, old medical sources, and other provided recent medical literature in these fields.
Materials and Methods: Old and new references about this scientist have been used.
Results: The biography of Hakim Jorjani has been well reviewed and described precisely.
Conclusions: Based on our findings, it is clear that Jorjani described and explained the symptoms, signs and treatments of several diseases, introduced the activities of various medicinal plants, and compound formulations. He achieved all of this during his continuous visits to prestigious medical centers and famous people of his time.
