Penetrating injury in children resulting in a corneal tear with associated complicated cataract can present in different ways. The presence of fibrovascular downgrowth on the posterior capsule is very unusual and has never been reported before with pediatric traumatic cataract. In this study, we describe surgical management of such a case along with its postoperative course to help achieve good visual outcome.
