 Rajasthan Woman Sheds Tears of Blood

A 22-year old woman from Kota, Rajasthan, is suffering from a rare disease that makes her shed tears of blood rather than saline water.

The woman, Lakshaya Bais, is only the third person to have been diagnosed with the disease. She is currently being treated at the government-run Maharao Bheem Singh (MBS) hospital by Dr Manoj Saluja who said that she is suffering from a blood clotting disorder which is very difficult to detect with many hospitals not having the facilities as they are very costly.


Dr Saluja revealed that Lakshaya is the third patient known to be suffering from the disease, with the other two patients being traced to Lucknow and Calcutta.

"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. 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", Dr Saluja said.
