This shocking image shows how a man cried blood for an hour after suffering from a rare medical condition.
The unnamed man, 52, is thought to have visited a hospital in the Sicilian city of Messina after blood started leaking from both his eyes.
Initially, the bleeding only carried on for a couple of minutes before it stopped.
However, while he was waiting to be seen by the medical staff it started again.
Doctors discovered the man had non-cancerous tumors underneath his eyelids and diagnosed that he was suffering from a rare condition called haemolacria.
These tumors are made of blood vessel cells, which are often seen on the skin of children and are sometimes known as strawberry marks.
The case was reported in the New England Journal of Medicine.
It stated the man couldn’t explain why it was happening as he hadn’t injured either of his eyes or his nose or even any other part of his head.
He also said he did not suffer from nosebleeds, bleeding gums or was easily bruised.
The man was given eye drops containing timolol, which is usually used to treat glaucoma and relieve the pressure on the eye.
He returned to the hospital a year later for a checkup but said his eyes had not been bleeding.
