As there was no iris the control-test of ' the shadow cast by the pupillary margin was lacking. This thin and rather soft nucleus also explained why the forceps cut through it so readily. This peculiar nucleus will be referred to again below. RESULTS. In all four of these eyes there was severe reaction, and irido-cyclitis or cyclitis set in. In the brother Henry (coloboma) this was very marked in each eye. In the brother John (irideremia) with only this narrow strip of iris we can hardly speak of an iritis; the inflammation here must have been a pure cyclitis. In the eye where the lens had broken and a piece dropped out of reach the inflammation was particularly severe. This inflammation in an aniridic eye would suggest that probably in some, if not in many, cases of ordinary cataract operation where an irido-cyclitis ensues, that this complication is really due to fragments of lens material which have dropped back of the iris, and press upon the ciliary body. If this be probably true it adds an additional weight to the views of those who maintain the necessity of as thorough a removal as possible of all fragments of cortex. This may be secured by the seesaw pressure; by coaxing out with the spoon; or by the irrigation of the anterior chamber. This point that it is irritation of the ciliary body rather than the iris that brings about this postoperation reaction is further supported by the well-known fact that a clean cut, simple iridectomy is rarely followed by any reaction.
