Posterior subcapsular cataracts in steroid treated children

Posterior subcapsular cataracts in steroid treated children

Archives of Ophthalmology 77(2): 161-162

The occurrence of PSC in 8 of 15 children receiving corticosteroid therapy for over 2 years was observed. The PSC may be related to corticosteroid treatment and were not associated with a particular disease. Corticosteroid treatments up to 1 year were not associated with observable lenticular changes.
