This bruise comes and goes. It is perfectly round and always at the lumbar spine, at the curvature. It seems to coincide with menstruating. The child is only 14, will be 15 in Dec., but this has been going on since she was very young. She has had several tests run, and all that has been said to her was that she was laying flat on the floor, causing suction between her back and floor and making this place on her... can you believe that?! Could this be malnutrition? She is overweight (wears about a 20-22) and is only about 5'1". She gets very little exercise. Recently her little brother was diagnosed with a kidney stone! His problem was due to bad diet. Any clues about what could be wrong with this little girl?
