A woman “sweating blood” from her face and hands confused doctors when admitted to the hospital.
A 21-year-old woman has no visible injuries on her skin but she suffered from the disorder for three years specially when physically active or under stress.
The bleeding episodes would last between one to five minutes leading the woman to become socially isolated.
Doctors concluded that it is an uncommon disease that would cause spontaneous discharge of ‘blood sweat’ through undamaged skin.
Hematologist Dr. Michelle Sholzberg, co-director of the Hemophilia Comprehensive Care program at St. Michael's Hospital, told CBC News "I can say with clarity that I've never seen a case like this — ever."
"I think this person has a very bizarre anatomical defect on a microscopic level that is resulting in this very unusual symptom," he added.
