The corneal endothelial status was studied in 40 eyes of patients with congenital cataract before and 3 months after surgery. Twenty eyes of patients who underwent pars plana lensectomy revealed a mean endothelial cell loss of 8% (SD +/- .76) while the remaining 20 eyes which were operated by needling aspiration had a endothelial cell loss of 10% (SD +/- .89). The difference between the two groups was not statistically significant.
