Abstract
Trichobezoar is a mass found trapped in the gastrointestinal system formed from the ingestion of hair. They are mostly localized inside the stomach, and they can occasionally extend from the pylorus into the duodenum and small intestines. At the same time, they are almost always associated with trichotillomania, trichophagia, and other psychiatric diseases. Trichobezoar can be easily confused with other diseases characterized by abdominal pain and vomiting. Removal of the mass with laparotomic, laparoscopic, and endoscopic interventions is an available treatment approach. Among them, the laparotomic approach is the most effective treatment modality. Herein, we present a case and reviewed the literature from a general outlook in order to emphasize current, updated approaches to the pediatric cases with trichobezoar.
