Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Congenital dacryocystoceles are a relatively rare variant of nasolacrimal duct obstruction, accounting for only 0.1% of infants with congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction. We report a new case of bilateral congenital dacrocystoceles diagnosed in an otherwise uncomplicated fetal ultrasound examination during the 33rd week of pregnancy. The diagnosis was confirmed postnatally. The neonate, who did not present postpartum respiratory distress, was scheduled for endoscopic marsupialization-probing of the cystic structures. Parents must be well informed about the risk of respiratory distress, and facial appearance. Complete resolution is achieved after surgical intervention. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
