    ABSTRACT: This article reports a case of an aggressive congenital tumor composed of elements derived entirely from the primitive optic vesicle in an otherwise healthy child. All tissues identified took origin in the primitive optic vesicle. We believe this is the first description of such a tumor, which resembled a congenital cystic eye but was distinct because it lacked a capsule, infiltrated the lower eyelid, and was locally aggressive and recurred after excision.

    ABSTRACT: An orbital abscess is an ophthalmic surgical emergency that is typically caused by the spread of bacteria from adjacent structures, such as the sinuses, eyelids, or teeth. Although acute dacryocystitis is commonly associated with preseptal cellulitis, it rarely causes orbital infection. Infection of the lacrimal sac will typically localize in the preseptal space because the lacrimal sac lies anterior to the orbital septum. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of an intraconal abscess secondary to acute dacryocystitis. The key points in the surgical management of this entity are discussed.
