Abstract

A dacryocele is an uncommon complication of obstruction in nasolacrimal drainage system. It seems to occur as a result of a distal obstruction at the Hasner's valve and an proximal obstruction at the Rosenmuller's valve and has mostly been treated by opthalmologists until now. We present a rare case of dacryocele with recurrent dacryocystitis, which recurred after lacrimal probing and bougination. Dacryocele has been treated successfully through marsupialization under the endoscopic visualization.
