Case report: We report a case of a 12-year-old patient who complained about visual disturbances in left eye for 6 months. His visual acuity was 1/0.9, funduscopy in left eye revealed a free-floating cyst in the anterior vitreous. Magnetic resonance showed a low intense image in T1, and B-scan ultrasound confirmed a hypoechogenic cyst of 3.2x4.3mm; ultrasound biomicroscopy revealed a normal ciliary body. Conclusion: Given the good VA the patient will be monitored periodically. If the cyst interferes with visual axis, management with Nd:YAG or Argon laser photocystotomy or remove it by pars plana vitrectomy has been advocated.
