Abstract

Purpose: To describe a case of lacrimal gland ductal cyst complicated by secondary infection. Methods: Case report. Results: A 51-year-old woman presented acutely with an enlarging, painful mass in the superotemporal fornix. Clinical examination, echography, and surgical evaluation revealed a lacrimal gland ductal cyst with abscess formation. The lacrimal gland cyst was treated with oral antibiotics in combination with incision, drainage, and marsupialization. Conclusions: Lacrimal gland ductal cysts are rare but must be considered in the differential diagnosis of lacrimal gland and upper eyelid mass lesions. Typically, lacrimal gland ductal cysts develop after chronic inflammation, infection, or trauma. We describe a patient who presented acutely with a lacrimal gland ductal cyst associated with a rare complication of abscess formation.
