Fukushima says never treated Francis (2)

Japanese neurosurgeon decries media 'falsehoods'

(ANSA) - Tokyo, October 23 - Neurosurgeon Takanori Fukushima told ANSA on Friday that, contrary to recent media reports, he has never treated Pope Francis. "So many falsehoods have been written," he said from his home in Raleigh, NC. "I only met him once and I doubt he remembers me". The leading Japanese surgeon added he was stunned at the "unexpected media overexposure" after a report by Quotidiano Nazionale (QN) daily that the Japanese specialist diagnosed Pope Francis as having a small, treatable brain tumour.
    The Vatican has denied the report.
