Microscopically, the pancreas was filled with moderately differentiated ductal pancreatic adenocarcinoma (Figs 4 and 5). Attempts at duct formation were seen in the tumor, and intracellular mucin was also noted. There was perineural invasion; adjacent lymph nodes were involved by metastatic carcinoma. Some necrosis and inflammation was present. Adjacent normal pancreatic tissue was invaded by this carcinoma. The liver showed metastases of pancreatic adenocarcinoma. There was extensive intrahepatic and intracanalicular bile stasis.
