Lacrimal gland prolapse, also known as lacrimal gland displacement or lacrimal gland dislocation, is defined as significant herniation of the lacrimal gland outside the lacrimal fossa. It is an underrecognized clinical condition that needs to be differentiated from mass lesions in the preseptal space.
Imaging has an important role in diagnosing lacrimal gland prolapse to avoid inadvertent surgical excision.
