The imaging features of persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHPV) affecting the posterior eye are well known. We recently encountered a patient with the anterior variant of PHPV who had MR imaging of the orbits. We present the clinical and imaging findings of this unusual entity and discuss the therapeutic options available for its management.
