Endoscopic management of a cystic naso lacrimal obstruction in a dog

Endoscopic management of a cystic naso lacrimal obstruction in a dog

Journal of Small Animal Practice 25(12): 729-736

A young adult dachshund was presented with a cystic obstruction of the naso-lacrimal duct causing maxillo-turbinate destruction but no epiphora. The lesion was demonstrated by dacryocystorhinography and identified on nasal endoscopy, which also permitted the successful creation of a permanent fistula without resort to invasive surgery. Histological examination of the cystic wall of the duct showed normal turbinate structures replaced by chronic inflammatory tissue.
