Peripapillary retinoschisis and serous detachment of neurosensory retina after a non-penetrating deep sclerectomy

Abstract Case report of a 46-year-old patient with unsatisfactory clinical controlled juvenile glaucoma and peripapillary retinoschisis who, after being submitted to non-penetrating deep sclerectomy, evolved with serous detachment of the neurosensory retina. The association between peripapillary retinoschisis and serous detachment after filtering surgery is rare and only one case has been described in the literature. The purpose of this report is, besides to emphasize the rarity of the association, to show the importance of investigating peripapillary retinoschisis in glaucomatous patients, especially if associated with retinal nerve fiber layer, and the importance of adequate explanation to patients of possible serous detachment of retina in the postoperative of filtering surgery.
