In Sam-Kuk-Sa-Ki there are several types of records which are associated with medicine. They are of the plagues, delivery of twins, drugs in use of the time, religious healing and names of some diseases. Records of plagues are most frequently described and they are described associated with climate and natural disasters. Those who delivered twins were awarded by the nation. Because at that time when population was not so large, the population was the power of the nation. As Buddhism was the ruling religion of the time, records of religious healing were mostly associated with the Buddhism. Medical records in Sam-Kuk-Sa-Ki gives us valuable clues to the understanding of the medicine of the time, the ancient Koreans' concept of diseases and the way how they confronted them.
Key Words: History, Sam-Kuk-Sa-Ki, Plague
