A female infant born prematurely at 23 weeks' gestational age developed bilateral hereditary cataracts at post-menstrual age 33 weeks, which precluded retinopathy of prematurity screening. The infant underwent right cataract extraction 1 week later, and retinopathy of prematurity was monitored by examining the right eye. In the seventeenth week of life (post-menstrual age 40 weeks), the cataract was removed from the left eye. Visual outcome at 19 months of age was good in both eyes. Very early cataract extraction may be necessary in premature infants to allow ROP evaluations.
