Dear Editor,

We thank Sood et al . [1] for their keen interest in our article [2] and sharing their views and experience regarding the management of oculosporidiosis. The reader has rightly observed the need for an aggressive approach for oculosporidiosis involving the lacrimal sac with subcutaneous spread. Probably this may be the reason why we encountered recurrence during our study. We agree with the reader that rhinosporidium is wrongly included under phycomycetes by us. We apologize for our error and thank Sood et al . [1] for pointing it out. The molecular biological analysis of the organism's ribosomal DNA has proved it to be an aquatic protistan parasite. [3]
