Valude reports the case of a man of 54 years. Four days after normal cataract extraction the iris prolapsed and was immediately abscised. On the following day, expulsive bleeding took place, and sight was lost. The lateness of this hemorrhage is remarkable and may have been connected in some way with the prolapse of the iris.
