Hematidrosis: Three-year-old girl from Hyderabad cries tears of blood, doctors fail to find permanent cure
Hyderabad : A three-year-old girl from Hyderabad has been detected with a rare disease which has left doctors scratching their heads. According to reports, the girl has been seen crying with blood tears.
Identified as Ahana Afzal, she had started bleeding from her nose 16 months ago with doctors claiming it to be a symptom of viral fever. But now, the girl had started bleeds from her mouth, ears, eyes and private parts of her body regularly.
Dr Sirisha told ANI: "Ahana might be having a rare condition called Hematidrosis in which a human sweats blood. After days of medical care and concern, the bleeding has reduced a lot. 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 the process is on."
Ahana's father claims that he had reported nose bleeding as early as the girl was just 1 year old. Doctors have failed to find a permanent cure for the disease.
