Three decades have passed since the first time evidence-based medicine (EBM), in its current form, was introduced. Arguably, over the past two decades it has been the most significant movement in medicine. There is no need to emphasize any approach to clinical medicine practice, including EBM, has its proponents and opponents. Certainly, EBM has been subjected to many challenges and criticisms. Some of those challenges are basically related to misunderstanding and misinterpretations of EBM. However, there are some challenges that are real and are acknowledged by the most loyal EBM supporters. After hearing some criticisms posed by few knowledgeable and competent dermatologists during the recently held 7th Evidence-Based Dermatology (EBD) seminar in Tehran, the authors of this letter, two of the pioneers of EBD in Iran, decide to open a gate for sharing and discussing different viewpoints on EBM and EBD.
