Lacrimal Ductal Cyst (Dacryops)

Lacrimal Ductal Cyst (Dacryops)
This rare lesion develops because of an obstruction and subsequent expansion of the duct of the lacrimal gland. The lesion is filled with a serous fluid. It lights up when transilluminated with a fiberoptic lightprobe (see also under sudiferous cyst of lid).
