Cataracta centralis pulverulenta (embryonic nuclear cataract) is characterized by powdery opacity involving the embryonic nucleus. Often bilateral, this dominantly inherited condition usually does not affect vision. We are reporting a 46-year-old female having visual acuity of hand movements in the right eye with embryonic nuclear cataract and posterior polar cataract with prominent riders [Figure 1]. Fundus examination revealed persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHPV). Examination of the left eye was unremarkable. Unilateral cataract centralis pulverulenta with associated with posterior polar cataract and PHPV is presented for its rarity.
