Pancreatic Islet

There are about one million islets distributed throughout the pancreas of a healthy adult human, each of which measures about 0.2 mm in diameter. Each is separated from the surrounding pancreatic tissue by a thin fibrous connective tissue capsule which is continuous with the fibrous connective tissue that is interwoven throughout the rest of the pancreas.
