The writer of the first pictorial Turkish Anatomy handwritten book (Tesrih-i ebdan ve Tercuman-i kibale-i feylesufan) is Sirvanlı Semseddin Itaki. In our study, we aimed to review the neuroanatomy topics in his book, and to show the relationship between the book and the current anatomy knowledge that we have today. One of the main characteristic of the book is the availability of numerous illustrated explanations. Itaki studied neuroanatomy in two parts in his book. He considered peripheral and cranial nerves in the common structure of organ related structures in the book. He considered the topic, cerebrum in internal organs. He combined the illustrations and schemes he used for considering the neuroanatomy topics with pretty good and explanatory notes. Different sides were seen in addition to similarities to nowadays knowledge.
