Chronic lacrimal canaliculitis - the answer to a three-year history of red eye.
Arq Bras Oftalmol. 2018 Jul-Aug; 81(4):341-343.AB

Abstract

Chronic lacrimal canaliculitis is a rare infection of the lacrimal system, and can lead to misdiagnosis due to its overlapping presentation to other common entities. The authors report a case of lacrimal canaliculitis with a three-year history of recurrent unilateral red eye and mucopurulent discharge. Here, we describe the clinical course, surgical details, and microbial analysis of canaliculitis infection.
