White pupil in an infant
A whitish pupillary reflex (leukocoria) indicates abnormal reflection from intraocular pathology. In a child, leukocoria may be a sign of serious and even life-threatening eye disease (retinoblastoma), but the most common cause is congenital cataract.

We here present a case story of an infant with leukocoria that proved to be caused by unilateral congenital cataract.
