• Fibrous histiocytoma is a soft-tissue tumor that was first described in 1961. The orbit is a site of predilection. Chronic epiphora, which was caused by a mass involving the lacrimal sac, developed in a woman. She subsequently underwent dacryocystectomy. On pathological examination, the tumor was found to be a fibrous histiocytoma. This is, to our knowledge, the first reported case of a fibrous histiocytoma originating in the lacrimal sac.
