A girl who spontaneously bleeds from her pores is baffling doctors

Twinkle Dwivedi, 13, has a strange disorder which means she loses blood through her skin without being cut or scratched.

She has even undergone transfusions after pints of it seeped through her eyes, nose, hairline, neck and the soles of her feet.

Sometimes her condition is so bad she wakes up with her entire body covered in dried blood.

Villagers near her home in Uttar Pradesh, India, believe she must be cursed and shout cruel things in the street.

Her frantic family have sought help from numerous doctors as well as preachers from many different religions without success.

@JPB,
Poor Twinkle-bless her heart. Man people are mean...I have never heard of anything like this before. Kind of nauseating.

The world is definitely set up in such a way that you never have to look terribly far to see people with worse problems than yours....

@gungasnake,
When I read the thread title I thought, 'Duh, all girls do that when they get old enough.'

I bet the Doctors figure it out before the preachers do.

@rosborne979,
preachers will figure it out first - to their content. Won't have anything to do with science. Won't be able to cure it. I wonder if this is where stigmatas come from (the bleeding of soles and palms).
