The use of silicone implants for breast aesthetic and reconstructive surgery has been the method most widely used since the mid-twentieth century and every day has more followers both by patients and plastic surgeons. Its implementation as biologically inert material has been reviewed following the report of cases linked to autoimmunity collectively known as auto inflammatory syndrome adjuvants. While the low incidence of reported cases currently prevents the establishment of parameters that contraindicate the use of silicone there is a predisposition to relate with the onset of autoimmune diseases known or not, including genetic predisposition to them. However, there are publications of different authors that associate clinical pictures as the so-called Asian syndrome or a variety of Still's disease, with the presence of silicone breast implants. The reason for this presentation is to draw attention to the possibility of the onset of disease through immunological mechanisms associated with the presence of silicone in the body, generating not only a difficult differential diagnosis and effective treatment also.
