A man with a history of seizures and breathing problems was admitted to hospital on Tuesday after a week in the intensive care unit.
The patient, who was admitted on Saturday, was being treated for suspected hemophilia after his heart stopped and the heart valves became blocked, Israel’s medical board said.
His condition deteriorated rapidly and he had to be transferred to a hospital in Israel’s central city of Tel Aviv.
Israel’s health ministry had said he had a heart condition and was suffering from cardiac arrest.
In a statement on Tuesday, the ministry said that the man was taken to hospital in the morning for a blood test and then was discharged the next day.
“During the night, he underwent a routine cardiac arrest test,” it said.
“His condition improved rapidly, and he was transferred to hospital the next morning.”
A spokesman for the medical board added that doctors are monitoring the patient’s condition and his condition is expected to improve.

“We are monitoring this case carefully,” Ganor told The Associated Press.
“It could be a result of hemophiliacs who have a severe case of hemopoietic stem cell transplant.”
An Israeli medical team is working to try and find a cure for a rare type of leukemia in the country, the countrys national news agency reported on Monday.
The man is believed to be the first person in the world to receive a stem cell donation from a patient, according to a statement by the medical team.
The donation comes from a young woman in her late 20s who was diagnosed with cancer in the mid-1980s and later died.
The donor was an 18-year-old Israeli man who had lost his sight in a car accident and was in the hospital for a period of time.
The medical team says it will begin a blood donation campaign, which will last until March, to try to help the man with his leukemia.
