Abstract

Nonrhegmatogenous retinal detachments occur in the pediatric population secondary to other ocular disorders. The most important cause to identify is retinoblastoma. Computed tomography has proven to be the most reliable ancillary diagnostic test in this pediatric population. A series of eighty patients, presenting with nonrhegmatogenous retinal detachments, was examined. The role of computed tomography and characteristic clinical findings are discussed.
