1

Condition

Chronic Pancreatitis

2

Secretion of bile acids provides

Digestion of dietary fats

Excretory route for metabolites and drugs

Buffers to neutralize acid pH from stomach

3

Clinical signs of acute pancreatitis

Severe abdominal pain

Anorexia

Vomiting

Cardiovascular collapse

4

Describe this developmental abnormality of the pancreas

Pancreatic Hypoplasia (Pancreatic Atrophy- Dogs)

5

Anomaly of the gallbladder is a common result of fasting but can also be caused by Lantana camara toxicosis.

Gallbladder distention

6

Pancreatic condition in which calculi are formed within the pancreatic duct due to inflammation.

Pancreatic Lithiasis

7

Condition

Pancreatic Lithiasis

8

Describe this developmental abnormality of the pancreas

Anomalous tail

9

What dis?

Gallbladder Distension

10

Differential diagnosis for gallbladder edema

Right sided heart failure

Infectious Canine Hepatitis

11

Condition of the gallbladder where components of bile are supersaturated and precipitate - typically does not cause a problem unless obstruction occurs.

Gallbladder stones (choleliths)

12

Condition

Acute Pancreatitis

13

Describe this developmental abnormality of the pancreas

Ectopic Pancreas

14

What dis?

Cholecystitis

15

Condition

Acute Pancreatitis

16

Morphological Diagnosis

Diffuse severe fibrinous cholecystitis

17

Chronic Pancreatitis in horses is often secondary to

Parasitic migration

Ascending bacterial infection

Chronic eosinophilic gastroenteritis

18

Cholangitis, parasites of fibrosis and cholelithiasisi cause this gallbladder condition resulting in post hepatic jandice, hepatic atrophy and biliary fibrosis.

Biliary Obstruction

19

Condition of the gallbladder that is typically of traumatic orgin that results in steady leakage of bile into the peritoneal cavity - chemical peritonitis.

Rupture of the biliary tract or the gallbladder

20

Condition

Pancreatic Hyperplasia

21

Pancreatic condition characterized by fibrosis, parenchymal atrophy and chronic inflammation usually a result from repeated mild episodes of acute pancreatitis

Chronic Pancreatitis

22

T/F: The exocrine pancreas, like the liver has a large functional reserve.

True

23

What dis?

Gallbladder Stones - Choleliths

24

Condition

Metastatic Melanoma of the Pancreas

25

Pancreatic neoplasm that originates from the pancreatic acini and/or ducts and is characterized histologically by thick fibrous connective tissue capsule.

Pancreatic Adenoma

26

Possible differential diagnosis for hemorrhagic cholecystitis

Salmonellosis (Cattle)

Arsenic Toxicosis

27

Condition

Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

28

Pancreatic condition due to defect in acinar tissue - the islet cell tissue may be quantitatively and qualitatively normal.

Pancreatic Hyplasia

Called Pancreatic Atrophy in canines

29

Condition

Pancreatic Adenoma

30

What dis?

Gallbladder carcinoma
