Anomalies of pancreatic development

Anomalies in the development of internal organs in humans are common, and the pancreas in this regard is no exception. Deviations from the norm in this organ are not uncommon. The main reason is genetic defects, which provoke abnormal development of organs and systems.

Among these vices, the most common is the extra pancreas, when together with the main organ in humans there is one more smaller gland. It can be located both in the gastrointestinal tract and outside it - in the liver, kidneys, spleen. Usually these additional glands are inactive, and do not manifest themselves in any way. Their presence in the body is detected by chance, for example, in gastrofibroscopic examination of the gastrointestinal tract. Miniature glands are difficult to distinguish from polyps and ulcers, so biopsy is required for accurate diagnosis.

Another congenital malformation is the ring-shaped pancreas. The normal organ has an elongated shape, and for a given anomaly of iron in the form of a ring it encircles the duodenum in a certain part of it. Such a defect can adversely affect the patency of food, because the bowel is squashed by the pancreas. This is manifested by a dull pain in the abdomen from the right side, a feeling of heaviness, nausea, vomiting, malaise. This defect of the gland is usually found during examination for peptic ulcer or pancreatitis.

There are duct anomalies among congenital malformations - in most cases - an asymptomatic defect. Such troubles, as a violation of digestion and chronic pancreatitis, can occur with a narrowed duct.

If anomalies cause trouble, surgical intervention is required. Only in this way can this body be brought into a state as close as possible to normal.

In cystic fibrosis, there is an anomaly, such as cystic fibrosis of the pancreas. Cystic fibrosis is a disease in which almost all biological fluids are concentrated in the body. This affects all organs and systems, including the pancreas. Condensed pancreatic juice causes stagnation in the gland and a gradual degeneration of the organ. Unfortunately, there is no effective cystic fibrosis treatment for today, but use both antibacterial, enzymatic substitution, and surgical treatment.
