The disinterment of a corpse. The circumstances which render this necessary are :-1. Judicial investigations relative to the body of the person inhumed. 2. The removal of a body from one cemetery to another; and, 3. The evacuation of cemeteries or sepulchral vaults. The operation is attended with much unpleasant smell and annoyance, and requires the use of disinfecting agents, of which the most powerful is chlorinated lime. See Disinfection. The putrid effluvia from animal substances are not, however, found to excite endemic disease.
