Abstract: Bezoars are concretion of human or vegetable fibers that accumulate in the gastro-intestinal tract. Most common type of bezoar in humans is trichobezoar and almost all patients with a trichobezoar suffer from trichotillomania. Multiple giant bezoars which totally fill the stomach lumen and have extension to small intestine (Rapunzel Syndrome) are very rare. This is a case report of a young female who had a history of trichotillomania, trichophagia and pica. After investigations, she was diagnosed as a case of double trichobezoar in stomach with distal one extending to duodenum.
