Abstract:
The present study is carried out to obtain information about macro and microanatomy of pancreas in guinea fowl. Samples were collected from six healthy guinea fowls and were processed by routine histological methods and stained with haematoxylin and eosin solution. The pancreas with dorsal and ventral lobes was located between the duodenal loops in the right abdominal cavity. Histologically, the pancreas of guinea fowl comprised of exocrine and endocrine portions. The exocrine part was made up of numerous secretory acinar units with its duct system. The pancreatic acini were lined by pyramidal shaped cells with basal nuclei. The endocrine islets was lightly stained among the darkly stained pancreatic acini and had alpha and beta cells
