The occurrence of posterior subcapsular cataracts (PSC) in eight of 15 children receiving corticosteroid therapy for over two years has been observed. The PSC appeared to be related to corticosteroid treatment and were not associated with a particular disease. Periods of corticosteroid treatment up to one year were not associated with observable lenticular changes.
