Lesions of the lens are frequent during perforating trauma of the eye, in the majority of cases it is post traumatic cataract, however some cases of lens abscess have been reported in the literature and occur when a purulent infiltration develops inside the crystalline cortex [1].It is important to recognize this sequestered infection and to remove the abscess surgically to prevent chronic endophthalmitis.We report the case of an intra lenticular lens abscess treated surgically by phacoemulsification with good postoperative results.
