Regarding the article that appeared online in The Guardian, on Monday, September 25, 2017:
The Mütter Museum of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia is, as the article suggested, already in communication with the appropriate officials within the Australian Army regarding the cited specimen.
This is being treated with the highest regard to protocol and precedent for such specimens.
The Museum will release a further statement when appropriate.
The Mütter Museum helps the public appreciate the mysteries and beauty of the human body while understanding the history of diagnosis and treatment of disease.
