Purpose: Primary lacrimal canaliculitis (PLC) is a unique disorder which often gets misdiagnosed by the general as well as speciality-trained ophthalmologists. Elderly patients with history of chronic or recurrent epiphora with discharge, often get mislead towards chronic dacryocystitis. The aim of our report is to discuss the misleading diseases in our PLC patients and to revisit this hidden disease. Methods: The patients of PLC who were previously misdiagnosed were studied...

Severe dry eye is a refractory ophthalmologic disease. Our multidisciplinary research group treated severe dry eye by microvascular autologous transplantation of submandibular gland (SMG) during the past 20 years. The SMG, with its blood vessels and Wharton's duct, was harvested from the submandibular triangle and transferred to the temporal area. The blood vessels in the SMG were anastomosed with the temporal blood vessels using a microsurgical technique. Then, the distal end of Wharton's duct was sutured to form an opening in the upper lateral conjunctival fold...

BACKGROUND: Dacryoendoscopy (DE) is an established method in lacrimal surgery. Long-term follow-up-analyses of this surgery are of great interest. Here, factors influencing postoperative success rates should be considered to elect suitable patients. METHODS: In this retrospective study, patients having had dacryoendoscopic surgery were included. Using a questionnaire, a prospective follow-up analysis was made. Pre- and intraoperative factors were correlated with treatment success, which was defined as improved epiphora, absence of a second lacrimal surgery and no signs of chronic dacryocystitis (secretion, pain at the lacrimal sac)...

BACKGROUND: Lymphomas of the lacrimal sac are rare, accounting for less than 10% of lacrimal sac malignant tumours. They may present with symptoms typical of secondary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction and are thus often misdiagnosed. METHODS: Case series and literature review. RESULTS: Herein we describe 3 cases of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL)/small-cell lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) of the lacrimal sac with immunohistochemical and in 1 case molecular confirmation...

To evaluate the dacryocystectomy (DCT) outcomes for chronic dacryocystitis in an elderly population over 70 years old. A retrospective chart review was performed for patients over 70 years old who were diagnosed with chronic dacryocystitis and underwent DCT at the Botucatu School of Medicine, UNESP, Brazil, from 2007 to July 2014. Data were collected about patient demographics, age, gender, previous nasal, or ophthalmic diseases, symptoms related to the lacrimal drainage system preoperatively and postoperatively, signs of enlargement of the lacrimal sac (regurgitation of secretion), and histopathologic evaluation...

Lacrimal sac septum is a rare structural abnormality of the lacrimal system. A 15-year-old patient presented with epiphora and a mass inferior to the left medial canthal tendon. Dacryocystography and CT-dacryocystography revealed a dilated lacrimal sac with complete obstruction. A horizontal lacrimal sac septum was found in the mid-sac region during endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy. Histopathologic examination of the septum revealed chronic inflammation with stratified columnar epithelial cell lining consistent with the lacrimal sac...

We established a chronic dacryocystitis model by injecting of 0.05, 0.1, and 0.15 ml self-curing resin via the lacrimal punctum in rabbits. Animals were randomized into four groups (n = 11 animals/group). The control group received 0.15 ml normal saline. Within three months postinjection, epiphora and eye discharge were observed. At the 90th day postlacrimal passage irrigation, CT dacryocystography was performed to find changes in the lacrimal image, and hematoxylin and eosin staining was made to identify pathological changes of the lacrimal sac...

REVIEW
Yamini Krishna, Sarah E Coupland
Tumors of the lacrimal sac are rare but their recognition and early management are imperative, as they are locally invasive and potentially life-threatening. Because of their rarity, large clinical studies with statistically significant data on the natural course, management, and prognosis of these neoplasms are unavailable. Current practices are therefore based on a few case series and a small number of isolated case reports. Most tumors are primary and of epithelial origin (60-94%), of which 55% are malignant...

BACKGROUND: Lacrimation of the eye is a relatively common problem, the cause of which must be clarified by differential diagnostics. The most important symptom of a dysfunction of lacrimal drainage is epiphora. METHODS: Due to the enhancement and miniaturization of endoscopes, which were originally used in gastroduodenoscopy in the 1990s, it is possible to check the anatomical structure and visualize pathological changes of the lacrimal drainage system, which is only approximately 1 mm in diameter...

INTRODUCTION: Congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) is the most common cause of epiphora in infancy. Spontaneous resolution occurs in the majority of the cases by 1 year of age. Nevertheless, obstruction has a negative impact on the outcome of conservative or surgical therapy, especially in cases of complex CNLDO. When the condition persists beyond several months, early intervention with dacryoendoscopy (DE) around the age of 1 year could yield good results. The objective of the study is to analyze the success rate and effectiveness of early DE for complex CNLDO in the first year of life...

BACKGROUND: One of the most frequent issues in pediatric ophthalmology concerns congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO). Typically, irritation of the medial eyelid angle occurs during the first days of life and later increased epiphora appears as tear production is still reduced in young infants. In the case of intrasaccal or postsaccal nasolacrimal duct stenosis, a chronic dacryocystitis develops. METHODS: Modern minimally invasive diagnostics and therapy of CNLDO are reviewed by means of a search of the recent literature and reflection of own experiences...

We present two patients with dacryoliths and patent lacrimal drainage with intermittent tearing and without infection. Dacryoliths can be present in the lacrimal sac or lacrimal duct without acute or chronic inflammation. In these cases, we believe dacryolith formation was a causative factor of intermittent epiphora even with a patent drainage system, and we propose that dacryoliths and even fungal colonization formation may be the first event before dacryocystitis and should be considered as a cause of epiphora...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of lacrimal sac abscess of the traditional surgical approach may result in complications from cutaneous fistula formation, damage the sac, cause skin scarring and even have the potential for inducing cicatricial ectropion. We designed a new treatment scheme that is expected to achieve internal drainage with the use of lacrimal probe and crawford silicon tube. METHODS: A prospective study was performed for the management of lacrimal sac abscesses...
