There are several organs that function as both an endocrine and exocrine organ. Examples include the liver (endo - secretes hormones such as insulin-like growth factor, exo - secretes bile), the pancreas (endo - secretes hormones such as insulin, exo - secretes enzymes into digestive tract) and the kidneys (endo - secretes hormones such as renin, exo - secretes urine).
