Self Relationship in Salesforce

A Self-Relationship in Salesforce is a lookup relationship to the same object. It creates a tree diagram of the objects.

Suppose we order some product from an online store, but we have not got the right product at the moment of delivery.

So we raise the case to replace the product and the second time we got the right product, but the product is not worth of money.
So we raise the case for a refund

Our first case becomes a master or Parent case and the second becomes the child
