Using Hilbert theory and Mindlin's couple stress theory, the problem of two-dimensional circular inhomogeneity (when the inserted material is of different size than the size of the cavity and having different elastic constants) is studiedin this paper. Stress could be bounded at infinity. The formulation is valid also for regions other then the circular ones when the matrix is finite has also been tackled. Numerical results are in conformity with the fact that the effect of couple stresses is negligible when the ratio of the smallest dimension of the body to the cahracteristic length is large.
