Abstract

Congenital dacryocystoceles are variants of nasolacrimal duct obstruction. Even though they are considered to be a benign condition, intranasal extensions can bring about serious respiratory distress syndrome in neonates. Controversy still exists regarding conventional and invasive treatment options. There was total resolution with simple massaging of the cyst in this case.
