3-year-old Hyderabad girl cries ‘tears of blood’, distressed father seeks Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao and PM Modi for helpAhana is suffering from a rare medical condition called Hematidrosis
Our world is full of strange medical anomalies. One of these anomalies is blooding flowing from eyes. Recently, a 3-year-old girl in Hyderabad has been diagnosed with this strange medical condition. She literally cries tears of blood! This anomaly is known as Hematidrosis, which causes a person to produce sweat partially composed of blood. There have been several documented cases of this rare medical condition. The case of Ahana, a three-year-old girl is the latest addition to it. The baby girl’s nose started bleeding 16 months ago, but now the blood is oozing out from her mouth, ears and private parts as well.
Dr. Sirisha, who takes care of Ahana’s case at a private hospital in Hyderabad told ANI, that the girl might be suffering from a rare disease called Hematidrosis, which causes a person to sweat blood. Ever since the treatment started, her bleeding has substantially reduced.
“She required multiple transfusions and recurrent admissions. One’s physical health is badly affected with this and she is a child. It has not permanently been cured but process is on,” the doctor said.
Ahana’s father, Mohammed Afzal told ANI that doctors have no answers about the medical condition and they are clueless about a permanent cure for the disease.
“My daughter’s problem started when she had a nosebleed, aged one. At that time she was suffering from pneumonia. When I question doctors on her permanent cure, they don’t have an answer,” Afzal said.
He’s looking towards Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and Prime Minister Narendra Modi to help their ailing daughter.
A similar problem was reported by a 12-year-old girl who complained about recurrent episodes of spontaneous skin bleeding for one month. The bleeding occurred from different parts of body including, face, limb, palm and sole. In this condition (hematidrosis), the capillary vessels that feed the sweat glands are ruptured causing them to sweat blood. When a person is in extreme stress, a similar phenomenon can occur. Although this condition is not dangerous to life, but it needs medical intervention immediately.
