Macroscopically, the pancreas can be described as a pale-pink gland surrounded by adipose tissue. It is a mixed, serous, tubuloacinar gland, which contains in its parenchyma two categories of essential elements, with different structure, some of them creating the exocrine pancreas, and other, the endocrine pancreas. The pancreas is therefore classified as a mixed gland, consisting of parenchyma (pancreatic islets and glandular acinus) and stroma (capsule, septs). The exocrine part of the parenchyma is represented by well irrigated, mixed serous tubuloacinar glands, while the pancreatic islets represent the functional units of the endocrine pancreas, in the form of pseudo-islets and the existence of some intra-cytoplasmatic lipidic pseudo-inclusions. It is delimited by a fine capsule from which the dividing septa of the pancreatic lobules are detached.
