PMID:  23410817     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
After cataract surgery, a 69-year-old man presented with hypotony and choroidal effusion followed by retinal pigment epithelium tear and exudative detachment of the retina. Vitrectomy with fluid-air exchange successfully led to reattachment of all layers.To the authors' knowledge, this is the first reported case of successful surgical management of exudative detachment secondary to retinal pigment epithelium tears.
