3 year-old Hyderabad girl cries tears of blood

A three-year-old girl from Hyderabad is suffering from a strange medical condition which causes her to bleed not only from the nose but also from ears, eyes and other parts of the body.

It was 16 months ago when Ahana Afsal started bleeding from her nose but doctors at that time said she only had a high fever.

“When she was one year old she started bleeding from her nose. But doctors told me at that point in time that she was suffering from Pneumonia. The doctors did not answer when I asked if she will ever be completely fine” Afzal said to ANI.

Dr. Sirisha who is treating Ahana said to ANI that she is suffering from a rare condition called Hematidrosis. She added that she had to be admitted to the hospital many times and undergo multiple transfusions.  “The disease affects one’s physical health badly. Ahana is not permanently cured yet but the process is going on”, she said. 

Ahana’s father also said he will approach the government so that they support his daughter’s treatment.

Hematidrosis is a condition in which the patients bleed from various parts of their body. This causes due to the rupturing of the capillary blood vessels that feed the sweat glands. Even though the condition is not fatal but it needs serious medical treatment.
