Dear Editor,

We thank Kumar et al[1] for their interest in our article [2] and the comments.

We do agree that cases reported from the series by Leibovitch et al. [3] and Taban et al. [4] were not included, and we also agree that the bilateral case reported by Cheng et al. [5] was not included in the discussion. However, the case described by Knowles et al. [6] was orbital amyloidosis, than mere lacrimal gland involvement.

We would like to clarify that the axial proptosis was 2 mm and 2 mm was the inferior displacement.

We do agree that debulking is essential. However,this patient only had an incisional biopsy for diagnosis and opted to be under follow-up.
