We would like to thank Mirijello, De Cosmo and Sperandeo for their interest in our work [1]. In our article we evaluated lung ultrasonography (LUS) signs and their accuracy in the diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) [2], a disease for which better tools, including active case finding especially in high-burden countries, are critically needed to improve control of the largest cause of death from an infectious disease [3].
