Pseudomodular lattices have been used by the first author and L. Lovász [Combinatorica 7, 39-48 (1987)] in order to investigate combinatorial properties of algebraic matroids and were further analyzed by A. Björner and L. Lovász [Acta Sci. Math. 51, No. 3/4, 295-308 (1987)]. The purpose of our paper is to present local conditions, characterizing modular sublattices of a pseudomodular lattice. As an application, we derive a result by the second and the third author [Combinatorica 9, No. 2, 145-152 (1989)], implying that Lovász's min-max formula for matchings in projective geometries remains valid for pseudomodular lattices, and we discuss a relation with B. Lindstroems construction of subgeometries of full algebraic combinatorial geometries which are isomorphic to projective geometries over skew fields.
