Purpose: To clarify the causes of protracted obstruction of congenital nasolacrimal duct and to establish therapeutic guidelines based on dacryocystography using computed tomography (CT). Cases and Methods: CT dacryocystography was performed on 17 infants and a man (a father of one infant) with congenitally obstructed nasolacrimal duct. The obstruction was bilateral in 6 and unilateral in 12 patients. Findings: The lacrimal sac was distended in the majority of cases. Eight cases showed osseous atresia of nasolacrimal duct. Another 4 cases showed posterior curving or kinking of nasolacrimal duct. Surgery was indicated in 10 cases based on clinical and CT dacryocystographic findings. Cure was obtained in 7 cases by dacryocystorhinostomy and 3 by intubation. 7 of 18 cases needed no proccedure for cure. Conclusion: CT dacryocystography was useful in the diagnosis and therapeutic decision for chronic dacryocystitis in infants.
