Pleomorphic Adenoma of Lacrimal Gland

SS is a 72-year-old woman who experienced intermittent tearing of her left eye for several months. She was given a prescription for antihistamines by her primary care doctor without relief of her symptoms. She consulted an optometrist who referred her to an oculoplastic surgeon for surgical correction of the problem. He diagnosed a partial nasolacrimal duct obstruction and recommended surgery. However, she was reluctant to undergo an operation and decided to wait with the hope that the situation would spontaneously improve. Her symptoms worsened and she was referred to another ophthalmologist while visiting her sister in another city.
