(Paysse, Coats, Cassidy, 2017)
Paysse, Coats and Cassidy (2017) report that dacryocystoceles usually are noted at or shortly after birth. A bluish swelling of the skin overlying the lacrimal sac and superior displacement of the medial canthal tendon are the typical findings. Recommend follow up with pediatric Ophthalmology for further care due to risk of development of dacryocystitis.
