Abstract
Chronic sclerosing dacryoadenitis is a rare and under-recognized chronic inflammatory disease of the lacrimal gland. We describe 2 patients with a localized type of chronic sclerosing dacryoadenitis. Both patients presented with a slowly growing painless mass of the eyelid mimicking a tumorous lesion. The morphologic findings of the masses excised under the clinical diagnosis of lymphoma closely recapitulate those of chronic sclerosing sialadenitis (Kuttner tumor). Immunohistochemical staining demonstrated an increased population of IgG4-positive plasma cells confirming that this disease also belongs to the spectrum of a recently described IgG4-related sclerosing disease
