Tumors of the lacrimal sac are rarely encountered in clinical practice. The importance of recognizing this entity lies in the fact that the majority of the lacrimal sac tumors turn out to be malignant and thereby potentially life-threatening. Hence appropriate management of the lacrimal sac tumors is of utmost importance. We report a case of transitional cell carcinoma of the lacrimal sac, its presentation and management along with the review of the published literature.
