Dear Sir,

I appreciate the interest of the author in the article "Retinoblastoma: Achieving new standards with methods of chemotherapy."[1] 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.[1] 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.
