A three-year-old girl in Hyderabad has been diagnosed with a strange medical condition. She cries tears of blood. Literally.
Ahana started having nose bleeds about 16 months ago, but now bleeds from her mouth, ears and private parts as well.
Dr Sirisha , Pediatric Oncologist, said,
“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 process is on.”
Meanwhile, the father of the girl, Mohammed Afzal, said,
“My daughter’s problem started when she had a nosebleed, aged one, that time she was suffering from pneumonia. When I question doctors on her permanent cure- they don’t have an answer. At present the doctors are taking help and suggestion from other hospital doctors and have been treating on my daughter. I request Central and State Government to help my daughter in this treatment”.
