Retinal dialysis is mostly associated with blunt trauma or at times spontaneous. A patient presented to us with fresh rhegmatogenous retinal detachment with no telltale history or signs of trauma. The causative break was retinal dialysis noted on the superonasal periphery. A characteristic peripheral chorioretinal degeneration simulating a coastline almost extending six clock hours was seen in both the eyes. We have discussed this rare presentation and the possibilities of the association between this newly identified lesion and spontaneous retinal dialysis in the following case report.
