Bilateral Persistent Hyperplastic Primary Vitreous
Persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHPV) is a congenital developmental anomaly of the eye caused by the failure of regression of primary vitreous with the abnormal persistence of hyaloid vasculature. Here we present a case of bilateral persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHPV) which is a rare entity, in a 2 months old infant who presented in our department with history of bilateral microopthalmia and leukocoria. In this regard ultrasound doppler, CT scan and MRI findings of PHPV will be discussed. We suggest that this entity, although rare, should be considered in the differential diagnosis while evaluating bilateral leukocoria.
