Sir,

We thank Dr. Anubhav Chauhan[1] and Dr. Deepak Kumar Sharma[2] for their keen interest in our case report. As they pointed out Takayasu's disease can cause a variety of retinal manifestations.[3] However, we did not find any involvement of the retina in our patient. Description of the involvement of the retina or any other system was not available in our article as they were beyond the scope of this case report.

Financial support and sponsorship

Nil.
