  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 6-month-old female infant manifested bilateral congenital cataract, microcornea and sclero-cornea. The chromosome pattern was normal. Pars plana lensectomy and iridectomy was performed in both eyes. Surgically obtained specimen of the iris showed hyalinization around vessels and reduced amount of iris pigment. The ocular abnormalities in the present case seemed to be due to abnormal migration of neural crest cells. Cause of cataract remained unexplained.
