Blood Tear DisorderIn a shocking case reported from Rajasthan’s Kota district, a 22-year old woman was diagnosed with a rare condition which makes her shed ``blood tears’’ from eyes instead of saline water.

The doctors at the government hospital of Kota district have said that the woman, Lakshaya Bais has become the third patient to be suffering from this rarest of the rare disease.

Dr. Manoj Saluja, who is the professor in medicines at the government-run Maharao Bheem Singh hospital and is treating Lakshaya, said “it is for the first time in my professional career that I have seen such a patient and Lakshaya is the third patient traced so far suffering from this rare disease of 'spontaneous bleeding through eyes”.

Before Lakshaya, two similar cases to be reported were traced in Lucknow and Kolkata.

Dr. Saluja added “shedding blood tears is a 'blood clotting disorder' and 'an inheritance defect of the body’. Detection tests
of the rare disease are very costly and facilities for them are not easily available’’.

Lakshaya’s father who is an SHO at the Mahila station Kota said “the rare disease first came to light on May 25 this year when Lakshaya began bleeding through eyes or shedding blood tears while studying in Udaipur”.

The girl loses conscious for some time whenever she sheds blood tears. Her father told that they had taken Lakshaya to several hospitals for treatment including AIIMS in Delhi and several others in Udaipur, Jodhpur, Mumbai, and Ahmadabad but it was of no use as the doctors received no clue about the disease. Also, the reports from all these hospitals showed that the patient was normal, said Lakshaya’s father.

He further added that his daughter had recovered from the disease for a while but, the condition resumed this week after which she was taken to MBS hospital.
