A newborn infant with bilateral mucoceles of the lacrimal sacs also had submucosal masses along the floor of the nose beneath the inferior turbinates communicating with the mucoceles. Drainage of the mucoceles was performed by needle aspiration and wide marsupialization of the nasal masses into the nose under direct visualization. To our knowledge, this is the first time that intranasal extension of mucoceles has been reported, and the first time that lacrimal sac mucoceles have been successfully treated via direct nasal drainage. We advocate careful nasal evaluation in cases of congenital lacrimal sac mucoceles to determine whether intranasal extension is common and whether intranasal drainage can be curative.
