We report the management of a rare case of bilateral, symmetrical, and spontaneous anterior lens capsule rupture with total soft cataractous lens in a 7-year-old child. The patient had no other predisposing factors or systemic associations. Bilateral lens aspiration was done through the fibrosed capsular opening, which behaved like a stable capsulorhexis and hydrophobic intraocular lens was implanted. At 6 weeks follow-up, the patient had good visual outcome without any astigmatism. Although capsule rupture is reported in trauma, Alports syndrome or in hypermature cataracts, to our best knowledge this is the first case report of bilateral symmetrical spontaneous anterior capsule rupture in an otherwise normal child.
