History of anatomy is full of data about continuous struggle between scientists, who fought to do their research by cadaver dissection, and the whole society, led by religious believes. Changes in society and religious organizations, dependent of religion and environment, often denied the possibility of doing that kind of research. Even when it was allowed to use cadavers in research, there was always a lack of legally provided cadavers, so the need for adequate replacement was always present. Apparently not so important for the history of medicine, anatomical manikins were used to educate generations in crucial moments and to continue scientific research in the area of human anatomy as one of the basic sciences of medicine. Acta Medica Medianae 2010;49(2):56-62.
