The lacrimal sac is blocked at both ends and a sterile swelling appears as a purplish swelling adjacent to the base of the nose. Simple lacrimal probing allows for a swift resolution of this problem; however, if there is anything atypical about the location or the appearance of the swelling, an ultrasound of the brain should be obtained to exclude an encephalocele.

Following a short period of antibiotics, probing of the lacrimal system should be performed.
