Case report A middle-aged adult male was referred to our institution due to unilateral corneal edema for a possible corneal transplant. At first, the patient denied a history of trauma. A small foreign body, which had been overlooked by the primary ophthalmologist, was detected by gonioscopy, embedded in the anterior chamber angle. It was successfully surgically removed and visual results were good. Discussion In any patient with unilateral unexplained corneal edema, it is necessary to rule out the presence of a foreign body in the anterior chamber.
