Purpose: To present three cases having bilateral congenital posterior capsular defects accompanying bilateral congenital cataracts.
Cases: Similar to the previous reports there were characteristic demarcation of thickened margins on the posterior capsule defects and white dots on the anterior vitreous face in all of our cases. In addition to previous reports, we detected a semi-transparent membrane at the location of the posterior capsule defect bilaterally in all of our cases.
Observations: This membrane was loosely attached to the borders of the posterior capsular opening and we removed it with vitreus cutter in two cases and with forceps in the other. In two cases the membranes covered the entire posterior capsular defect area; but in one case the membrane covered only the half of the defect. The cases were managed by standard irrigation - aspiration and anterior vitrectomy.
Conclusion: Ophthalmologists should be aware that in some congenital cataracts, they may notice congenital posterior capsular defects with accompanying membranes.
