Dear Editor

We read with great interest the excellent article by Akay et al.[1] We applaud the authors on diagnosing and managing the rare entity, but would like to make an important note.

Exostoses leading to visual deterioration as a result of optic nerve atrophy has also been reported,[2] and hence, in a setting where exostoses of the head and neck region is detected, a mandatory ophthalmic examination should be carried out.

Financial support and sponsorship

Nil.

Conflicts of interest

There are no conflicts of interest.
