The lacrimal drainage system (LDS) pathology is frequently encountered in the ophthalmology setting but is rarely discussed in the radiology literature. This is even truer for adult LDS lesions despite increase utilization of computed tomography and magnetic resonance in imaging for diagnosis of LDS pathology. The purpose of this image rich review is to highlight common adult LDS pathologies and introduce the radiologist to rare disease entities affecting this pathology rich anatomical region with emphasis on imaging findings, clinical presentation, and differential generation.
