Encysted lacrimal mucocele refers to diffuse, centrifugal enlargement of the lacrimal sac resulting from combined proximal and distal obstructions in lacrimal drainage system. Its presence in adults is an extremely rare event. The authors describe a case of giant lacrimal mucocele in an adult female presenting with only mild epiphora. The patient underwent aspiration of pus followed by external dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR). Patient's symptoms of epiphora resolved after surgery.
