This case highlights the postoperative management of a patient with hypotony who masqueraded as wound leak following manual small-incision cataract surgery (MSICS). A 66-year-old male patient underwent uneventful MSICS in the left eye. He developed postoperative hypotony following surgery. B-scan revealed a small peripheral shallow serous choroidal detachment. There was a mild conjunctival retraction which masqueraded as postoperative wound leak. Postoperative hypotony resolved after conservative management.
