Abstract

We report five members of a family with dacryocystitis associated with osteopoikilosis. The inheritance is autosomal dominant. Review of the literature revealed no other report of this kind of association. Osteopoikilosis must not be considered as a coincidental radiographic finding but as part of a systemic disorder.
