In this surgical video, Dr. Akshay Nair and colleagues present a case of dacryocele in an infant with congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO). This condition may develop due to obstruction of the canaliculus and often presents at birth as bluish swelling above the medial canthus. Urgent intervention is essential and requires endoscopic marsupialization of the intranasal cyst.
