Abstract

The pancreas is located in the abdomen caudal to the stomach and is composed of: a left limb or lobe, which lies caudal to the greater curvature of the stomach and adjacent to the cranial aspect of the transverse colon; a right limb or lobe, which lies just medial to the proximal duodenum; and a body between these two limbs. This chapter looks at pancreatitis, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, pancreatic neoplasia and pancreatic abscesses, cysts and pseudocysts. Case examples are included.

(c) Gross appearance of chronic pancreatitis at laparotomy (right, duodenal limb). Note the nodular appearance of the pancreas and extensive adhesions to the duodenum obscuring the mesentery. (d) Histological section from a cat showing typical chronic pancreatitis. There are large bands of fibrous tissue (light pink) separating islands of remaining acinar tissue (purple) and dense patches of lymphocytes.
