Thirty three children with classical galactosaemia diagnosed through newborn screening are considered. It is concluded that cataract formation has a direct relationship with poor dietary control. Erythrocyte galactose-1-phosphate (Gal-1-P) levels do not correspond to cataract formation unless many times higher than normal. The value of crystalline lens biomicroscopy is confirmed as a useful method for monitoring the dietary and biochemical control in classical galactosaemia.
