This is a 3D-scan of a bilateral dacryocystoceles seen at 37 weeks of gestation. The examination revealed two cystic masses located inferior-medial to the eyes. Inside the cysts, there was echogenic material inside the dacryocystoceles. No other associated anomalies were seen. After birth, the face of the baby was completely normal. A clinical examination did not reveal any mass. At day 5, the cysts appeared bilateral and drained spontaneously after a few days
Note the bilateral dacryocystoceles with a echogenic material inside.
