Pancreas: acute pancreatitis with enzymatic fat necrosis
Discipline: saponification
Note the C shaped pancreas on the left of the slide. The duodenum encompasses the head of the pancreas and the body and tail extend to the right. Note the chalky white areas (see arrows) representing calcium interacting with fatty acids derived from breakdown of fat by pancreatic lipases. This is called saponification. The calcification is also an example of dystrophic calcification, which is calcification of damaged tissue. Pancreatic calcifications are visible on x-ray, ultrasound, or CT scans. The red areas in the pancreas (see arrows) represent hemorrhage due to rupture of vessels destroyed by elastases in the pancreas. Acute pancreatitis is most often due to alcohol and biliary tract disease. Serum lipase and amylase are both elevated. Pain radiates into the back since the organ is retroperitoneal.
