Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment in children and adolescents is a challenging but relatively rare disorder that differs from its adult counterpart in terms of anatomical features, etiology, management, and prognosis. In this article, the clinical and etiopathogenic characteristics are highlighted, and an update is made on its surgical management. The aim is to provide a knowledge base on the benefits, risks and prognosis of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment surgery in children.
