Abstract

REPORT OF CASE

A case in which cystlike remains of the vasa hyaloidea propria were observed is reported as follows:

R. L., a boy 13 years of age, was referred for examination because of convergent concomitant squint of the left eye of 20 degrees. Vision of the right eye was 20/20, and that of the left eye was 20/100 and was not improved. The pupils, the tension and the fundi were normal. With direct illumination, there was seen to be present on the posterior pole of the left lens a white opacity resembling a posterior polar cataract. With the slit lamp the detailed examination of this opacity revealed:

In the retrolental space and attached by a strand of pigment slightly nasal to the posterior pole of the left lens was a globular, semitransparent cyst, about 1 by 0.5 mm. in diameter.
