The specimen consists of the greater part of the pancreas which is scarred and shows an occasional
cystic space together particularly in the body with numerous calculi. The pyloric portion of the
stomach and first part of the duodenum overlie the organ.
This man died at the age of 52, having been in general ill health for some years; there
was no known history of steatorrhea or of diabetes; this is presumably the end result of chronic
pancreatitis; there was no evidence at autopsy of hyperparathyroidism.
