Polyps of the Lacrymal Sac

Polyps of the Lacrymal Sac Abstract Both benign and malignant tumors of the lacrymal sac are not common, and so far only 117 cases have been reported in the literature (Duke-Elder, 1952).1 In this series only 26 nonspecific granulomas are included. Since that time some other benign tumors have been published,2-8 but their number is limited. In our country, where, because of the climate, chronic dacryocystitis is frequent enough, we rarely meet polyps of the tear sac. This paper deals with 3 cases of polyps of the tear sac which present many similarities both in their macroscopic and in their microscopic picture and in their etiology. It is this last which I intend to discuss particularly in this study. The first 2 cases have already been presented at the Hellenic Ophthalmological Society6,7 during the meetings of Feb. 21 and March 28, 1957; the third one has not been published.

Abstract

Abstract Both benign and malignant tumors of the lacrymal sac are not common, and so far only 117 cases have been reported in the literature (Duke-Elder, 1952).1 In this series only 26 nonspecific granulomas are included. Since that time some other benign tumors have been published,2-8 but their number is limited. In our country, where, because of the climate, chronic dacryocystitis is frequent enough, we rarely meet polyps of the tear sac. This paper deals with 3 cases of polyps of the tear sac which present many similarities both in their macroscopic and in their microscopic picture and in their etiology. It is this last which I intend to discuss particularly in this study. The first 2 cases have already been presented at the Hellenic Ophthalmological Society6,7 during the meetings of Feb. 21 and March 28, 1957; the third one has not been published.
