LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE OF THE PANCREAS           

There 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.
