Abstract

We thank Dr Jolobe for his helpful comments. The patient described in our case report1 did indeed demonstrate a marked elevation of the jugular venous pressure (JVP) up to the angle of the jaw, and this did not reduce despite an initial trial of diuretic. Improvement with resolution of signs occurred rapidly following definitive surgical treatment.

We are also pleased to report that the patient has recently been reviewed in the outpatient clinic and remains in good health.
