MYH9 disorder is characterized by large platelets and granulocyte inclusion bodies, and can be complicated with young-adult onsets of nephropathy, sensorineural hearing loss, and cataracts. Congenital cataracts in patients with MYH9 disorder is rare, and their etiology has not been elucidated. We report a 3-year-old patient with MYH9 disorder who had a p.E1066_A1072del mutation and developed cataracts congenitally. A review of the literature reveals that patients with an MYH9 exon 24 indel mutation, including p.E1066_A1072del, are susceptible to developing congenital cataracts and should be followed closely for other nonhematological complications.
