This paper focuses on some translation deficiencies or mistakes that started with Adıvar's assesments and continued by followers, Umur Bey, the period of the translation, an examination of the Istanbul copy that is the completed version of the translation with a criticism of formerly proposed ideas on the translation. With this study, it is aimed to support the maintainance of the studies on the history of medicine on a sounder basis.
