Retained cotton fibers (gossypiboma) are known following anterior segment surgeries. There is only one case report of pre retinal gossypiboma (retained cotton fibers; RCF) following pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with silicone oil tamponade (SOI) for proliferative diabetic retinopathy. It was associated with dense exudation surrounding it. We report three cases (two retrolental and one preretinal) of inert RCF (gossypiboma), following PPV-SOI for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.
