ABSTRACT.Purpose:

Endoscopic laser dacrocystorhinostomy is an alternative procedure to external approach DCR in children. We report our results with 5 patients (6 eyes) with congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction.

Methods:

Six endonasal DCR's were carried out using the KTP laser in patients with congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction resistant to probing and intubation.

Results:

The follow-up ranged from 3–8 months. All patients experienced a recurrence of their symptoms postoperatively.

Conclusion:

Endoscopic laser assisted DCR is not a successful procedure in children.
