The authors report a case of congenital bilateral corneal opacities in which one of the eyes was enucleated because of malignant glaucoma and corneal perforation. Corneal defects and iridocorneal adhesion were found, but aphakia was the major pathologic ocular finding. The clinical picture and pathology study indicated this case as a Peters' anomaly presenting congenital aphakia.
