Girl Oozes Tears Of Blood, Parents Seek Financial Aid For Treatment

Hyderabad: A three-year-old girl, identified as Ahana Afzal, has left her parents worrisome as she exudes blood upon cry. Not just from an eye, she also oozes blood from her mouth, ears, including private parts. The girl is now undergoing treatment at the Rainbow Hospital in Banjara Hills.Her father Mohammed Afzal works as a gym trainer and says that the girl becomes unconscious or semi-conscious while she bleeds.”The first 18 months the girl was normal. She started bleeding about 16 months ago. The bleeding occurs for seconds, sometimes minutes, and stops by itself. Sometimes she bleeds twice or thrice in a day, sometimes five times a week. I took her to hospitals in Mumbai and Bengaluru. No one could diagnose the disease,” the father says.Mohammed Afzal works as a gym trainer and says that the girl becomes unconscious or semi-conscious while she bleeds

Pediatric oncologist Dr Sirisha says that the girl may be suffering from a rare medical condition called Hematidrosis, which causes capillary blood vessels that feed the sweat glands rupture and ooze out 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,” Dr Sirisha said.Afzal has a son and Ahana is the younger daughter. So far the family has spent Rs1.5 lakh and unable to afford the expenditure Afzal had asked Telangana chief minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s help to provide with financial aid. An online fundraiser platform – Milaap – has raised funds over Rs2 lakh. If you would like to contribute
