Abstract

The clinical and histopathological findings of 24 cases of epithelial invasion of the anterior chamber are reported. The incidence of epithelial invasion following 26,471 cataract extractions in a large hospital where the fornix-based flap is used is no higher compared to incidences in other institutions.
