Abstract

Intraarticular particulate silicone rubber created by abrasion of silicone arthroplasty of the hand may be responsible for the development of an iatrogenic granulomatous synovitis and ostitis. Histological and ultrastructural appearances of the involved tissues are presented, together with a discussion of the possible mechanism and methods of pathological diagnosis.
