We describe a case of bilateral congenital lacrimal sac fistulas, associated with ectrodactyly-ectodermal dysplasia-clefting syndrome. The embryologic basis for this condition is discussed, as well as the epidemiology, typical presentation, and possible treatment modalities. After we excised the fistulas and intubated the nasolacrimal ducts in this patient, he experienced improvement in symptoms by report.
