Sweating is normal but we live in a strange world and come across several incidents in life that are beyond our understanding.

In such a bizarre incident, Italian doctors were left bewildered when they encountered a woman who sweats blood.

According to a case published in a medical journal on Monday, a 21-year-old Italian woman was admitted into a hospital for “sweating blood” from her face and her hands, a condition she’s had for three years.

Drs. Roberto Maglie and Marzia Caproni, both dermatologists at the University of Florence, reported the case in the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) on Monday.

The ‘mysterious’ woman would spontaneously bleed with no visible lesions on her skin. She would bleed profusely from her face and hands even in her sleep or while any physical activity.

It’s unclear what triggered the bleeding, but the bleeding intensified when she was under stress. The bleeding becomes more intense, she told doctors, during times of stress, and the episodes can last from one to five minutes.

The woman has isolated herself out of embarrassment, and reported symptoms associated with major depressive and panic disorders, doctors said in a report.

The women told doctors that she suffered major depression and panic disorder because of the condition and became “socially isolated.” She has no history of psychosis, the report said.

The doctors have floated different theories on what caused the condition, including factitious disorder, when someone would deceive others by appearing sick. But, she continued to spontaneously bleed after she was prescribed paroxetine and clonazepam for her depression and anxiety order.
