• We describe three cases of shallow posterior rhegmatogenous retinal detachment caused by tiny retinal tears. The clinical appearance of the detachments was very similar to that of idiopathic central serous chorioretinopathy or traction retinal detachment. However, the correct diagnosis was made by finding a tiny paravascular break. Vitrectomy without a thermal adhesion was successful in repairing the detachments.
