We thank Tan and coworkers for their interest in our article.1 Our patient developed CBS within a visual field defect caused by resection of the right occipital cortex. As mentioned by Tan and coworkers in their letter, physicians should be concerned about CBS in patients with cortical pathologic abnormalities, in addition to the well-described issue of CBS in patients with ocular pathologic abnormalities.
