Comments:
Leaked silicone causes fat necrosis and elicits a foreign body giant cell reaction. Silicone mastitis may also cause calcifications. During tissue processing, silicone is washed out leaving clear vacuolar spaces of varying sizes. The presence of silicone can be confirmed by electron microscopy, infrared spectroscopy, or atomic absorption spectrophotometry.
