A six-year-old Omani girl presented with complaints of decreased vision in both eyes (OU) of two years duration. Ophthalmic examination revealed best corrected visual acuity of 0.6 OU. Cover test and stereo acuity were normal. Anterior segment examination showed posterior subcapsular cataract OU [Figure 1]. Fundus evaluation revealed a floating mass in the anterior vitreous just behind the lens in the right eye (OD) as shown in [Figure 1]. There was no sign of intraocular inflammation. The fundus examination OU was otherwise unremarkable. B-scan OD showed a opacity in anterior vitreous. Pre-natal history was insignificant. Past ocular history was negative for trauma, infectious or inflammatory ocular disease. The child was otherwise healthy. Routine blood investigations (complete blood picture, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein) were normal.
