  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 4-year-old boy presented with posterior lenticonus in the left eye. The affected eye underwent lens removal surgery. Histological studies of the posterior capsule showed abnormal epithelial cells in the site of posterior lenticonus. The findings seemed to suggest that abnormal proliferation of ectopic epithelial cells during gestation had induced the posterior lenticonus.
