Three-year old cries tears of blood; doctors, parents puzzled

In Hyderabad, a three-year-old girl has left her parents and doctors terrified as she cries tears of blood under mysterious condition.
It was 16 months ago when Ahana Afzal started bleeding from her nose and doctors termed it as high fever. But now, the young girl bleeds from her mouth, ears, eyes and private parts of her body regularly.

“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”, Pediatric Oncologist, Dr Sirisha said.

Ahana’s father, Mohammed Afzal looks forward to receiving help from the government and PM Modi.

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.”
