Purpose: To report an unusual case of myopic peripapillary retinal detachment (PPRD) imaged by optical coherence tomography (OCT).
Methods: Observational case report.
Results: OCT showed a nonreflective space between the retinal pigment epithelium and the neurosensory retina with the presence of bridging tissue that could be defined as an outer retinal schisis, which is not typical of myopic PPRD.
Conclusion: This case suggests that the spectrum of PPRD in pathological myopia may extend beyond that already described.
Keywords: myopia, optical coherence tomography, peripapillary detachment
