are no lymphatic vessels in the islet of Langerhans of the pancreas, but most
vessels drain the acini and end in the pancreaticoduodenal nodes. Other vessels
terminate in the mesenteric pre-aortic nodes. All the efferents pass into the
intestinal lymph trunks, which then enter the cisterna chyli or the abdominal
confluence of lymph trunks. The cisterna chyli drains into the thoracic duct.
