Abstract

We are reporting a 52-year-old female that developed documented vision impairing, large, bilateral nuclear and cortical cataracts during therapy after 46 treatments of a planned 60 treatment course of HBO2 for a non-healing post-radiation leg wound. A review of the available literature makes this one of the earliest cases of cataract formation.
