Anatomy laboratories are essential for medical education, where students learn about the structures and their relations in the human body, through hands-on dissection of human cadavers. The problem of unclaimed bodies without medical records poses a serious threat to public health due to the potential for the spread of infections. Infection control practices are crucial in the handling of cadavers in anatomy laboratories to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Several studies have revealed the need for increased awareness and compliance with infection control measures among students and staff. To build upon this foundation, future research should focus on the development of standardized infection control guidelines and the use of modern technologies specific to anatomy laboratories. Such guidelines should outline the necessary procedures and protocols that should be followed for effective infection control.
