A patient with early bilateral nuclear cataracts and subsequent diagnosis of Fanconi-Bickel syndrome is described. Despite impaired galactose and glucose metabolism, cataracts have been reported in only few cases with this disorder. We conclude that Fanconi-Bickel syndrome should be considered in the differential diagnosis of neonatal cataracts. The pathogenesis of this complication has not been fully elucidated.
