Abstract Congenital dacryocystocele is an unusual type of nasolacrimal obstruction. Treatment with antibiotics or surgical removal is practiced to reduce the risks of infection (acute dacryocystitis) and potentially lethal septicemia. Here, we report a case of congenital dacryocystocele, antenatal ultrasonographic diagnosis (intrauterine), and postnatal reassessment.

A dacriocistocele congênita é um tipo incomum de obstrução lacrimal. Devido ao risco de se tornar infectada (dacriocistite aguda) e potencialmente letal com septicemia, podemos tratá-la com antibióticos e remoção cirúrgica. Relatamos um caso de dacriocistocele congênita com diagnóstico ultrassonográfico antenatal (intrauterino) e reavaliação pós-natal.
