Canaliculitis is an uncommon inflammation of the proximal lacrimal drainage system that is frequently misdiagnosed. It classically presents with symptoms of unilateral conjunctivitis, mucopurulent discharge, medial canthal inflammation, epiphora, and a red, pouting punctum. We summarize the literature on canaliculitis published from antiquity to the modern era and explore therapeutic options.
