A 6-year-old girl with membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) was referred for a systematic ophthalmological examination. Her visual acuity was 20/20 in both eyes, and detailed slit examination showed bilateral posterior subcapsular lens deposits. She was treated with corticosteroid and immunosuppressive therapy. Ophthalmological examination 10 months later showed a significant decrease of the lens deposits. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case reporting lens deposits in MPGN. It warns us to perform a detailed examination of the anterior segment and correct management of the pathology in order to be able to reduce these deposits.
