An Australian woman is attracting attention with unexpected side effects after undergoing anesthesia surgery.

According to foreign media such as the New York Post in the US on the 13th local time, 27-year-old Angela Yen from Brisbane, Australia, underwent tonsil surgery on April 19th.

For the next few days, Mr. Yan, who was resting without speaking as much as possible, noticed a strange symptom 10 days after the operation.

He habitually humming a song while taking a shower, but a completely strange voice came out of his mouth.

Mr. Yan tried to calmly read the sentences aloud.

However, anxious foresight soon emerged.

Mr. Yen was speaking with an Irish accent, not an Australian accent, which has been living for nearly 20 years.

Yen, who has lived in Australia since the age of eight, has never touched the land of Ireland. Still, Mr. Yen's Irish accent was almost perfect. What's more, no matter how hard I tried, I didn't come back with an Australian accent.

Upon hearing the news, the medical staff

raised the possibility that

Mr. Yan had

a rare speech disorder

called'foreign accent syndrome'


'Foreign Language Spoken Syndrome' is a speech disorder in which the accent of another country is spoken, and it is known to be caused by brain damage. To date, only 150 cases have been reported worldwide.

Mr. Yan, who started recording his symptoms on social media, said, "It is true that he had an anesthesia recently, but there are no other neurological symptoms and only this Irish accent does not disappear," said Mr. Yan.

When people questioning "Isn't it made up" appeared in an easily unbelievable story, Mr. Yen said, "I hope so, but this is a completely real situation. Each time the seismic cost is about 460 dollars (about 400,000 won) in Australia, and in Australia, "You also need language training in order to get your accent back, and the cost is expensive."

Dr. Carl Cruzzelniki, a scientist from NASA, shared her story on her social media network, saying, "These symptoms are very painful for me. Various causes such as head trauma, stroke, surgery, etc. are known, but they are still known." There could be any number of other causes that are not known.”
