Fetal valproate syndrome (FVS) results from valproate intake during pregnancy. Children with FVS may have various ocular abnormalities such as refractive error, amblyopia, and strabismus. Congenital pediatric cataract has been reported earlier in two cases. We describe a case of FVS, who presented to us with a bilateral total white cataract. The child underwent bilateral lens aspiration + posterior capsulorhexis + anterior vitrectomy + intraocular lens (IOL) implantation under general anesthesia followed by refraction.
