We present a clinical case attended at the emergency unit of the University Clinic-Surgical Hospital Comandante Faustino Perez, of Matanzas, in 2012, with a foreign intraocular body at the level of the crystalline lens in a female patient aged 43 years old, housewife, with antecedents of an ocular trauma at home. At the physical examination she had a visual deficit of 0,3, and a corneal injury affecting also the cornea-scleral limbus and the crystalline with an included foreign body. At the echographic examination we found an echogenic image compatible with a foreign body at the level of the crystalline. The cornea was sutured and the foreign body was extracted with a satisfactory evolution; there were not sequels.
