A previously healthy 4-month-old child presented with a right-sided medial canthal subcutaneous mass that was present for 2 weeks (Fig. 1). Parents stated it had been growing in size since it appeared, and there was tearing from this eye. Clinically, location and discolouration gave the appearance of a dacryocystocele; however, the lesion was firm and appeared adherent to the bone. The ocular examination was otherwise normal. Probing of the nasolacrimal duct showed free flow into the nose and did not decompress the lesion.
