Abstract: Despite the long-standing recognition of lacrimal symptoms summarized in the historical perspective, relatively little information is available concerning the epidemiology of acquired lacrimal outflow obstruction. A current population-based study providing this information would be useful in terms of determining the appropriate allocation of health care research and care delivery resources directed toward lacrimal obstruction. The present study is undertaken to evaluate the current concepts of the etiology, clinical characteristics, pathogenesis, microbiological workup, its management, find its complication and sequele. Sample size was 289 cases belonging to all age groups and all types of dacryocystitis.
