Separately secrete dacryocystitis of newborns. The disease may be due to congenital pathology (primary dacryocystitis) or to be acquired (secondary dacryocystitis). Congenital dacryocystitis appears in a child literally in the first days after birth and is associated with underdevelopment of tear-emitting paths.

Secondary dakriotsystyt develops later and can be caused by various diseases of the upper respiratory tract (rhinitis, curvature of the nasal septum, adenoids) or infection, such as influenza, measles, etc.

The main features dakriotsistit include: tearing, redness and swelling of the inner corner of the eye (in the absence of redness of the eyes), discharge from the tear point, clicking on the region lacrimal sac, serous-purulent discharge and one-sided disease. Chronic dakryotsystyte tear fluid loses its antibacterial properties result in stagnation multiply it microorganisms (usually pneumococcus and staphylococcus aureus), the result is genetic. The cause of chronic dacryocystitis may be tuberculosis or syphilis. Chronic dacryocystitis is the main cause of the development of an acute process or phlegmon of the lacrimal sac. Acute dacryocystitis is accompanied by an increase in body temperature, redness and swelling in the area of ​​the lacrimal sac, headache, frequent recurrences of the disease. The complication of the disease is the formation of fistula in the area of ​​the face or nose, as well as the development of a large phlegmon.

The diagnosis is established on the basis of a clinical picture and a statement of samples, which help to detect a violation of the patency of the nasolabal canal (a test with a collarbone, washing the channel with a solution of furatsillin).

Primary dacryocystitis is easily exposed to conservative methods of treatment, including: massage of the nasopharyngeal canal and flushing of the tear-flow paths.

For the treatment of secondary dacryocystitis it is often necessary to resort to surgical intervention - endonazal dacryocyte rhinotomy. In addition, conduct sensing of the nasolabial canal (the probe is injected through the nose or through the lacrimal point). To combat inflammation, antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs are prescribed.
