Combined cataract surgery and sutureless vitrectomy were performed in a 2-year-old boy with posterior lentiglobus. After an anterior capsulotomy was made, the lens nucleus was aspirated without hydrodissection to avoid posterior capsule rupture.

The cortex was carefully aspirated because the central posterior capsule moved up and down during irrigation and aspiration. A pars plana vitrectomy was then performed with the sutureless 25-gauge system for an anterior vitrectomy with a posterior capsulotomy. A +27 diopter AcrySof intraocular lens (IOL) (Alcon) was implanted with the haptics in the bag and the optic behind the posterior capsulotomy with optic capture. Two months postoperatively, the IOL was centered and there were no complications.

This surgical technique is easy and effective. It avoids complications, facilitates IOL implantation behind the posterior capsule, and improves the external appearance of the eye immediately postoperatively.
