Abstract

The pancreas can intimidate even the most experienced pathologist. The complexity of the anatomy of the pancreas and the importance of a good dissection in establishing the correct diagnosis make the arrival of a resected pancreas in the surgical pathology laboratory a particularly stressful event. This stress can, however, be greatly reduced if you familiarize yourself with a few basic aspects of the anatomy of the pancreas, and if you take a simple, logical approach to your dissection.
