Here we present a case report of the prenatal diagnosis of isolated bilateral dacryocystocele. The other possibilities involving the eye and orbit: facial hemangioma, dermoid cyst or anterior encephalocele were distinguished by the high-resolution prenatal ultrasound and Doppler findings. As dacryocystocele may be part of several congenital syndromes, detailed sonographic evaluation of the fetus is needed to exclude associated anatomic anomalies.
