...One of three known per­sons with this con­di­tion

Daily Trust - - DIGEST -

Do you know Twin­kle Dwivedi? A small In­dian girl cries blood in­stead of tears. You may have a com­ment that it is weird, but it is true. She is one of the three known per­sons in the world with this amaz­ing and weird phys­i­cal con­di­tion. Doc­tors have taken her sev­eral med­i­cal tests, ul­tra­sound and MRI but are still un­able to find what is wrong with this girl.

In this post, we’ll try to ex­plore some more in­for­ma­tion about Twin­kle Dwivedi and her un­for­tu­nate phys­i­cal con­di­tion which is a chal­lenge and a test case for doc­tors. Who is Twin­kle Dwivedi? She is a 12-year old schoolgirl from Luc­know, In­dia. She not only cries blood through eyes but also bleed from her skin, scalp and other parts of her body any time with not a sin­gle wound or cut and with­out feel­ing any pain. Doc­tors tried to sort out the ex­act dis­ease but all in vain, she still cries and sweats blood. What med­i­cal sci­ence says? Doc­tors are still un­able to find the ex­act rea­son be­hind the girl’s con­di­tion and she is still in the same con­di­tion. Her case is doc­u­mented as Haemo­lacria. Ac­cord­ing to some re­ports, she may be a pa­tient of Type II von Wille­brand, a dis­ease that is based on clot­ting dis­or­ders.

An­other re­port says, she may be a pa­tient of He­matidro­sis, a rare clin­i­cal phe­nom­e­non in which the pa­tient sweats blood.

Other re­ported cases of same phys­i­cal con­di­tion:

• Calvino In­man is a 15year old U.S. cit­i­zen who cries blood three times a day. Haemo­lacria is the con­di­tion that makes suf­fer­ers cry tears of blood.

The tears can either have a red tinge or ap­pear as though they are en­tirely made of blood.

While the vis­ual im­pact of haemo­lacria is pow­er­ful and may be very scary, it is not al­ways cause for con­cern

It is a symp­tom of many dis­eases and may be Sev­eral med­i­cal tests, MRI and ul­tra­sounds taken by the doc­tors but the cause be­hind his phys­i­cal con­di­tion is still mys­tery.

• Rashida Kha­toon, an­other In­dian girl has the same phys­i­cal con­di­tion and she cries blood in­stead of tears. Her case is also a mys­tery for the doc­tors like other men­tioned cases but the girl is de­clared a mir­a­cle by the lo­cals.

One thing is com­mon in all the re­ported pa­tients as they say they feel no pain while cry­ing blood. in­dica­tive of a tu­mour in the sys­tem that pro­duces tears.

It can also be pro­voked by con­junc­tivi­tis, en­vi­ron­men­tal dam­age or in­juries.

There have been cases of Haemo­lacria in­duced by hor­mones in grown women.

Some re­searchers sug­gest that it is con­nected to ex­treme stress or psy­cho­log­i­cal up­set.
