A very weird incidence has been recorded in Vietnam after a schoolgirl began to sweat blood as she was revising for exams.
t is now believed she has hematidrosis, a condition that affects one in 10 million people, hospital director Vu Tuan Anh said.
“It is characterised by blood oozing from skin. The bleeding is due to the rupture of the very small blood vessels of the skin.
The cause of hematidrosis is not well known, but factors include increased vascular pressure, inflammation of the vessels of the skin, bleeding disorders, menstruation and high blood pressure.
