Many of the texts referenced by faculty members and medical students are from foreign sources and references, and the history of contagious diseases and the unique role of the country's scientists in the identification, treatment and control of these diseases has been forgotten. This paper attempts to review the history of prevalent bacterial infections in Iran. In this regard, it was attempted to review the scientific literature, including historical books and articles, with the historical background of prevalent bacterial infectious diseases such as cholera, leprosy, plague, tuberculosis, etc., as well as those who are hard-working and have played a significant role in difficult conditions trying to reduce the suffering of the people at that time. A review of the history of prevalent bacterial infectious diseases in Iran leading to the historical background of these diseases to be detailed in the book "History of Microbiology and Bacterial Infectious Diseases in Iran" is under the supervision of the Academy of Medical Sciences. Editing of scientific resources and academic books related to this issue should be based on the history of prevalent infectious diseases in Iran, so that in the future this historic cultural disadvantage would be corrected in an appropriate way.
