Foreign body reaction of tissues is frequently encountered in routine surgical pathology, whether they contain foreign body or not. Though their presence or identification may be the important clue for the legal problems as in malpractice, and the identification of foreign body will give us the chance for reconstruction of patients' medical history, pathologists often overlook or neglect what they are. Besides curiosity, the description of individual foreign body and common site for its occurence will be of great help. Therefore, we classify and describe the features of 182 foreign bodies collected in practice of surgical pathology during 1979~82.
