Bilateral nasolacrimal duct cyst is an uncommon disease causing respiratory and feeding difficulty in neonates. It can either present pure intranasal cystic mass or be associated with dacryocystocele and/or dacryocystitis. Symptoms and signs of nasolacrimal duct cyst are different according to the patient's age and its bilaterality. Therefore, treatment should be individualized according to its presentation. The authors experienced one case of bilateral nasolacrimal duct cyst without dacryocystocele which caused respiratory difficulty and another case of nasolacrimal duct cyst associated with dacryocystocele. Both cases were treated by endoscopic marsupializaion of the cysts. We report these two cases with a brief review of the literature.
