TODDLER UNDERGOES SURGERY TO CORRECT CUTEST AILMENT EVER
April 8 2012
Manhasset, NY – Little Matthew Ehprem loves to laugh, a little too much as it turns out and will now have surgery to correct his jovial nature. Ephrem, 2, has undergone a risky and complicated surgery to remove a tumor which causes uncontrollable laughing fits, likely leaving him a mirthless, miserable little boy. The ailment, called hypothalamic hamartoma, is considered extremely rare and very difficult to resolve, largely because the surgeons and nurses have trouble containing their own laughter as soon as they see the patients. The surgeon who performed Ephrem’s surgery reportedly giggled through much of the operation, though he does not suffer the ailment himself.
