Sudden singularities in semiclassical gravity

It has been claimed in a recent paper [J. D. Barrow, A. B. Batista, J. C. Fabris, M. J. S. Houndjo, and G. Dito, Phys. Rev. D 84, 123518 (2011).] that sudden singularities will survive in semiclassical gravity. This issue is here carefully reviewed, pointing out that such conclusion, even if valid under some specific conditions, does not stand in other cases. An explicit example is studied in detail to support our statement, stemming from these other situations, that quantum effects may in fact drastically modify the behavior of sudden singularities.
