Abstract

A 22-year-old patient presented with persistent epiphora over a period of about 7 months. The clinical examination revealed a canalicular swelling in both lacrimal ducts, which postoperatively transpired to be an exophytic tumor. The histopathology result of the excised tumor showed an epithelial lesion, a partially inverted papilloma without malignancy. For tumors arising from lachrimal ducts the first-line therapy is complete tumor resection.
