I appreciate the interest of the author in the article "Retinoblastoma: Achieving new standards with methods of chemotherapy." The two images [a and c] in the Figure 2 of the article "Retinoblastoma: Achieving new standards with methods of chemotherapy" are of the same patient. The color difference in iris is probably because of difference in illumination settings during photography. The authors have mistaken a foreign body on the left slope of the nasal bridge to a mole. The patient has no mole on the nasal bridge. To clarify the author's doubt, we hereby attach an external photograph of the same patient, before and after systemic chemotherapy [Figure 1]. The foreign body is now located adjacent to the right medial canthus in the [Figure 1]a. I now hope this clears the author's doubt.
