Abstract In this letter the authors highlight the presence of an error appearing in the discussion of the note 'The use of the Henyey-Greenstein phase function in Monte Carlo simulations in biomedical optics' previously published by them (Binzoni et al 2006 Phys. Med. Biol. 51 N313). In the light of this error, the discussion and conclusions in the original paper are revised in this letter and the role of the use of the phase functions in MC simulations, interpreted in probabilistic terms, is better clarified. The exact definition for the probability density function for the deflection angle, in the case of the Henyey-Greenstein model, is also given.
