Slit lamp appearance of the lens from the proband. The cataract is visible as a central sutural opacity within the lens with additional cortical opacities visible extending radially. In the adults, the cortical opacities were more prominent near the lens equator but extending axially with increasing age. No other ocular abnormalities were demonstrated. The sequence of sutural opacities followed by radiating cortical opacity was reminiscent of the appearance of cataracts developing in diabetic rats.8
