Soper, Rickard, and Crawford have described the history and results of a service, organized as part of the Brazilian Yellow Fever Service, for the demonstration of silent yellow fever foci by means of routine collection and histopathological examination of liver specimens from cadavers of persons dying after an illness of short duration. From the name given to the instrument devised for removal of specimens this Service has been called the “Viscerotome Service.” In view of the extension of the Viscerotome Service to several South American countries and the possibility of the application of similar methods in other regions, a description of the administrative procedure of this Service in Brazil may be useful.
