Among structural lesions 7 patients (15.5%) presented with Dacryops. There were 5 female and 2 male patients.
This study has increased incidence of structural lesions (Dacryops).
This group contains variety of lesions like structural lesions (Dacryops), lymphoma, malignant tumours and dacryoadenitis.
There was significant proportion of structural lesions (Dacryops) presented in this study.
Lesions visible through the conjunctival fornices should be differentiated from implantation epidermoid cysts secondary to surgery or trauma as well as dacryops of accessory lacrimal glands that are associated with conjunctivitis, especially trachoma .
Dacryops have a cuboidal epithelium lining surrounded by a layer of spindled myoepithelial cells and chronic inflammatory reaction .
During the surgical excision of dacryops which is a simple cyst of the lacrimal gland, a perforation of the thin wall of the cyst may lead to collapse of the lesion and complicate the surgery.

Bilatetal dacryops: correlation of clinical, radiologic, and histopathologic featutes.
The cases of dermoid cyst belong to 3 children 5-8 years of age and another in a teenager (4 patients, 12.90%) and dacryops (2 patients, 6.45%) all accounted for the lacrimal fossa lesions.
They reported 64% inflammatory lesions, 14% lymphoid tumours, 22% lesion of epithelial origin (12% pleomorphic adenoma, 6% dacryops and 4% malignant epithelial tumours).
Shields et al concluded that among benign lesions, the most common lacrimal gland tumours were pleomorphic adenomas and dacryops.  Pleomorphic adenomas accounts for 50 percent of all epithelial tumours of the lacrimal gland.
