Abstract: It is pointed out that so far all theoretical estimates of coherent pionproduction off nuclei induced by neutrinos rely on the -local approximation-well known in photonuclear physics. The effects of dropping this approximationare discussed. It is found that in a plane wave approximation for the pion thelocal approximation overestimates the coherent neutrino-induced pion productionon nuclei.
