Respected authors of the article with the aim of re-reading the history of common bacterial infectious diseases in Iran in a part of the study examined the history of trachoma infectious disease. Despite some important therapeutic measures in the fight against trachoma, but historical sources and documents show that important aspects of trachoma have not been carefully considered by researchers. Owing to the importance of medical history studies in medical research, please publish the following points in one of the journal's issues as a letter to the editor.
