Angioleiomyomas are benign tumors composed of smooth muscle and vascular endothelium. While infrequent in overall prevalence, they are exceptionally rare in the head and neck. Herein, we describe the case of a 65-year-old female who was found to have an angioleiomyoma of the right nasolacrimal duct. Endoscopic excision of the lesion along with medial maxillectomy and dacryocystorhinostomy were performed without complication. The current report is one of few reported cases of angioleiomyomas of the lacrimal drainage system.
