Description

The lacrimal caruncle is a mucosal protuberance, as a small, reddish, conical-shaped body, situated at the medial palpebral commissure, and filling up the lacus lacrimalis. It consists of a small island of skin containing sebaceous and sudoriferous glands, and is the source of the whitish secretion which constantly collects in this region. A few slender hairs are attached to its surface.
