We thank the authors for their interest in our paper.[1] The authors describe various features of primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) and raise suspicion regarding the diagnosis of spontaneously regressed PCG. In our opinion, all features of the disease may not be present in every case. The case described by us presented with unilateral enlargement of cornea and Haab's striae. Other than spontaneously regressed PCG, the differential diagnosis in this scenario includes corneal striae due to forceps injury at birth and posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy. Corneal Descemet's membrane tears due to birth trauma are unilateral and vertically oriented. However, corneal size is normal in these eyes. Posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy presents with vesicular and band shaped lesions at the endothelium and Descemet's membrane. Unlike the case presented by us, this condition is bilateral, symmetric, and slowly progressive. Considering the differential diagnosis, the features of our case fit the description of spontaneously regressed PCG.
