Blood sweat and tears .... Yaritza started shedding bloody tears earlier this month
DOCTORS in Chile are baffled by a woman who has started crying tears of BLOOD.
Yaritza Oliva was terrified when the strange condition appeared earlier this month.
Ever since, with no warning, the 20-year-old bleeds from her eyes several times a day.
Yaritza visited her doctor but when no evidence of an infection could be found she was sent home with eye drops to help her cope with the pain, which she says is "indescribable".
Haemolacria Rare ... it's possible she has a condition called haemolacria
Her parents are now asking friends and neighbours in Purranque, Chile, to help them raise the money to send their daughter to an eye expert.
Her carpenter dad Jose appealed on a local news show: "Please put your hands over your hearts, see our situation and help my daughter."
It's possible Yaritza has a very rare condition called haemolacria, which causes sufferers to produce tears containing blood.
There are only THREE documented cases of the condition, which can be symptomatic of a more serious illness or a tumour - or caused by a high level of hormones in fertile women.
it used to say, “The Sun via Drudge” but the second part was disappeared for some reason.
Reminds me of the stigmata phenomenon.
I know that that there were no quotation marks, but rendering blood in ALL CAPS made me thing the woman was crying; in the sense of yelling or screaming, the word “BLOOD”.
