Fifteen year old Tennessee teenager Calvino Inman has an incredibly mysterious ailment … At least three times a day Calvino bleeds from his eyes. He says that these unexplained tears of blood can last from a few minutes to up to an hour.

"Sometimes, I can feel it coming up, like a tear. I feel my eyes watering. Sometimes, it will burn as it comes out. I’ve been called possessed by almost all of my friends. I guess I’m used to it now. At first, it kind of hurt my feelings,"
The first time she saw it, his mom called 911. Doctors have done an MRI and a CAT scan along with numerous tests and ultrasounds on Calvino and all the tests have come back normal. Calvino’s mother has taken him to several specialists but still has no diagnosis and no treatment.
"Every doctor tells us they’ve never seen anything like this before in all their many years of being a doctor," "More than anything, I just truly want somebody to say they’ve seen this and they can help us. I don’t care where we have to travel. I will go wherever we need to go. I will do whatever I have to do. I just please want somebody to help my baby. That’s all,"
National Geographic is also advertising a special report on a young girl in India who not only mysteriously bleeds from her eyes – but also her hands, head and feet. There is another woman in India named Rashida Khatoon who is thought of as a holy shrine and is actually worshipped because of her blood tears. Doctors in India, like the doctors in the US – are stumped by this condition.
Are these cases related? Is this simply a “medical mystery” or something … bigger?
