Successful eye surgery for Baby Nathan, local baby considered medical mystery


An update on a local baby with a mysterious medical condition.

Doctors diagnosed Nathan Aguirre with “Cutis Laxa Type 3” – a rare condition which affects the connective tissue throughout his body.

In January, Nathan underwent surgery to fix an abnormality in his stomach.

He was doing better and was about to go home, when he suffered another setback.

Cataracts began forming in the little boy’s eyes, to the point where he could not see. 

Doctors successfully operated on his left eye Wednesday. 

The family says Nathan is scheduled to have surgery on his right eye next week.
