It is shown that a Kerr cavity with different losses for the two polarization components of the field can support both dark and bright cavity solitons (CS's). A parametrically driven Ginzburg–Landau equation is shown to describe the system for large-cavity anisotropy. In one transverse dimension the nonlinear dynamics of the bright CS's is numerically investigated.
