Lacrimal gland duct cysts

, : Lacrimal gland duct cysts. Ophthalmic Surgery 16(5): 301-306

Lacrimal gland duct cysts develop insidiously in the superotemporal cul de sac. They may be preceded by trauma, infection, or inflammation of the conjunctiva. They are often asymptomatic but may induce discomfort, a sensation of fullness, a visible mass, lid distortion or ectropion. Fluctuation in size with weeping or environmental stimuli is seen. Histopathology is variable. Six cases are described to demonstrate the features. Complete excision of each cyst by meticulous dissection through a conjunctival approach was performed. Total resection is the optimal technique to prevent recurrence.
