In 1889, Julius Cohnheim argued that autopsies aid in tracing the footsteps of Nature. Before then, a Pathological Society had been formed in London, its Transactions being published from 1846-1848 period.

The positive results were in keeping with the personal similar series written on the pancreas, bone and kidney.
