On the ground floor of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (National Autonomous University of Mexico), a room with huge display cases holds hundreds of animal specimens. This is the Museo de Anatomopatología (Museum of Pathological Anatomy), an exhibit showing the macabre diseases that can affect animals.
The museum is visited by hundreds of students and professors of the biological sciences every year. Its oldest specimens date back to 1938, when the collection was started by Dr. Manuel H. Sarvide, who was then the head of the Department of Pathology. The museum moved into new facilities in 1971, and was expanded by Dr. Aline Schunemann de Aluja. In 1991, the collection was installed in its current location.
