The Tansūqnāmah is a Persian adaptation of a Chinese medical work —or works— commisioned by the Mongol vizier, physician and man of letters Rashīd al-Dīn (d. 1318). This treatise, which has survived in a unicum manuscript, contains anatomical illustrations copied from Chinese sources that do not have any parallel in the anatomical tradition developed in the Islamic world.
