Dear Editor,

We appreciate the observations made by Grover et al , [1] in response to our article "Anterior segment manifestations of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)". [2]

We agree that the external photograph of the patient with facial skin lesions show more of maxillary herpetic lesions. Our intention was to depict a severe form of herpes zoster lesion in an AIDS patient. A more representative external photograph of herpes zoster ophthalmicus in a patient with AIDS is added with this reply [Figure 1].

We agree that dacryocystitis, basal cell carcinoma, chalazion, bacterial folliculitis, madarosis, stye, scleritis, episcleritis, complicated cataract are also documented as well as rare anterior segment/adnexal lesions seen in patients with HIV/AIDS.

We have intentionally excluded orbital lesions in our article as we had stressed on anterior segment and common adnexal lesions seen in patients with HIV/AIDS, especially in India.
