Abstract AFTER intraocular surgery foreign material is noted occasionally in the ocular tissues clinically and very often histologically. In some cases the foreign material may act as a toxic substance, effecting a postoperative inflammatory reaction. Duszynski1 recently reported on this problem with special reference to lint from drapes and powder used on gloves. He presented photomicrographs, taken with polarized light, of ocular tissues after glaucoma surgery. Foreign material was surrounded by granulomatous tissue. In 1928 Doherty2 reported a case in which presumed India-rubber foreign particles were first noted 11 years after an extracapsular cataract extraction. Six red particles, 1 to 2 mm. in diameter, were seen in the iris crypts, without inflammatory reaction or fibrosis. It was believed that the particles were rubber introduced by an irrigating system with a rubber bulb. In 1948 Doherty3 mentioned three cases of rubber foreign bodies in the eye and stated that References 1. Duszynski, L. R.: Contamination of Operative Wounds with Cotton Fibrils and Talc , Tr. Am.
