Trichobezoar in Modern Era: A Case Report of Concurrent Trichobezoar of Stomach and Small Intestine
Abstract: Trichobezoar is a rare condition in which concretions accumulate in gastro-intestinal tract because of ingested hairs from head that may pose a diagnostic challenge. Patients often have an underlying psychiatric illness and history may not be easily forthcoming. This condition should be entertained especially in adolescent females. Futile complications can occur if there is delay in diagnosis and management. Several treatment options have been proposed, including removal by conventional laparotomy, laparoscopy and endoscopy. We report a case of a 16 year old female with no history suggestive of psychiatric illness, presenting as a case of sub-acute intestinal obstruction who underwent laparotomy and revealed 3 trichobezoars in gastro-intestinal tract.
