Abstract Pseudoexfoliations syndrome increases the risk of anterior capsular contraction syndrome.
An 74-year-old man with pseudoexfoliation syndrome underwent cataract surgery in the right eye at Mohamed V military hospital, Morocco.
The surgical procedure was uncomplicated, and the IOL was implanted in the capsular bag. One month after surgery, visual acuity was 20/20 (Snellen). Two months after surgery, however, significant anterior capsule phimosis was noted, with nasal zonular stretching and temporal displacement of the lens. The patient was satisfied with her visual acuity, and no further procedures were necessary. The patient is periodically reassessed.
