PURPOSE: To report the association of congenital nasolacrimal duct occlusion and clinical anophthalmos in an eight-year-old girl. METHODS: A case report. The patient suffered from epiphora and clinical anophthalmos on the right side since birth. This paper presents the clinical presentation, workup, and surgical approach of the case. RESULTS: The nasolacrimal system of the patient was occluded on irrigation. Computed tomography showed a blockage at the level of the sac-duct junction, an enlarged nasolacrimal duct below the obstruction, and a sclera-like ball of tissue surrounded by extraocular muscles in the right orbit. Treatment included a right bicanalicular silicon intubation performed under general anesthesia. CONCLUSION: This case may represent a new association that has not been previously reported.
