Born in Baghdad, Abdel Latif Bin Yusuf al-Baghdadi specialized in the study of the skeleton, and corrected many earlier misconceptions about the skeleton.

He is the author of “al-Ifadat wal Itibar” in which he states that medical students used to frequent a hill near Damascus full of human skeletons for their study.
