Re: Genetic Anemia
Interesting posting. My Kendall family has long had a history of frequent nose bleeds, and skin issues.
I personally have a "glass nose" and get nose bleeds at least once or twice a month. I also have skin leasions which appear around my eyes above and below. The skin leasions seem to clear up and go away after a couple of weeks but then re-appear out of the blue. Don't seem to have problems with internal bleeding and I don't bruise easily. The skin issues just started appearing recently now that I am entering my late 40's.
My dad has skin issue's all over and so did his although he doesn't seem to get nose bleeds ??? We have always just referred to this skin problem as our Kendall Curse.
I have an uncle who nearly died from a rampant skin problem.
Is this condition likely to afflict anyone who has a Kendall background or just certain lines of Kendalls?
Tried looking it up on Web MD not much there. Why did you decide to post this? Just curious. I would be interested in more info. can you help? Thanks Mike Kendall
