Among foreign bodies involved in ocular trauma, three-fourths are accounted by iron, causing ocular siderosis. We report a case of total white cataract with golden-brown deposits over the anterior lens capsule. Clinical examination made us suspicious about a foreign body which was detected on a computerized tomography (CT) scan in the ciliary body. The patient underwent cataract surgery, and the anterior capsule was histopathologically proven to have siderotic changes. Caution is advised in cases when there may be a long time interval for the development of ocular siderosis. Siderotic changes in the lens may occur even when there is no intralenticular foreign body.
