Key words: rhegmatogenous retinal detachment, choroidal detachment, hypotony, intraocular inflammation

The clinical features of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment complicated by choroidal detachment was studied in 39 eyes. The baseline intraocular pressure (IOP) were 6.4(1.5) mm Hg, choroidal detachment height 4.5(2.3) mm. Signs of intraocular inflammation formalized by severity and identified the most significant statistical relationships between the features of front (eye redness, pain, presence of posterior synechiae) and posterior uveitis (vitreous opacity), height of choroidal detachment and hypotension level. Patients with sever inflammatory signs had the highest choroidal detachment height (5.7—6.1 mm) and the lowest rates of IOP (5,7—6,0 mm Hg) (in all cases p <0.5).
