We report a 16-year-old Jordanian female who presented with bleeding from both eyes of sudden onset. Her physical examination was remarkable for blood pouring from both eyes, and normal otherwise examination including eye and nose examination. During hospital stay, it was noted that DQbleedingDQ occurred only when alone in the room. She later was seen to prick her finger tips of the left hand with her right hand using a hair clip. She denied any psychological problems, and later did not show for follow-up. Munchausen syndrome as a cause of bleeding is discussed.
