We thank the author for appreciating our article entitled "Idiopathic intracranial hypertension in pediatric population: Case series from India." We completely agree with the opinion that an orbital ultrasound in expert hands is a useful non-invasive tool in the diagnosis of IIH.
The test would complement a lumbar puncture, the gold standard, and also would aid in monitoring the response to treatment. Increasing the awareness regarding this non-invasive test is required and we are happy that our paper paved the way for making this practical suggestion.
