This is a case report of the development of a lacrimal fistula following repeated anterior levator resections for severe ptosis. The fistula was excised and pathologically traced to an accessory lacrimal gland. This patient represented the first documented case following an accessory lacrimal gland as the source for a fistula following levator resections for ptosis.
