Sir,

We would like to thank the author for the review and showing great interest in our article. We would also like to thank them for the observations that they have made as well as for clarifications.

Few cases of schwannoma were encountered by us. These had cystic/necrotic changes. MR spectroscopy revealed lipid/lactate peak elevation with significant decrease in choline integral values. However, more cases need to be evaluated related to the significance of these findings.

We concur with the views expressed regarding previous few studies, where the results have been expressed in terms of metabolite ratios.[1] However, pertaining to our study, where most of the lesions were diffused and histopathological confirmation was available for cases, the comparison was made in relation to integral values of the metabolites and deviation from normal spectra, and metabolite ratios were not used.
