This image depicts a posterior view of a cluster of abdominal organs extracted from a deceased rhesus monkey, during the animal’s necropsy. Included was the inflamed pancreas, alongside the duodenum to its right, the spleen to its left. The left kidney is also visible in this view. The pancreatic inflammation was due to a case of acute pancreatitis. The measurement ruler revealed that this simian pancreas measured approximately four centimeters. See PHIL 15341, for an anterior view of these structures.
