Abstract

Extremely rare case of a giant stomach trichobezoar in a 9-year-old girl. The disease was asymptomatic for a long time. Presence of a mass which could be palpated through the abdominal wall in stomach area suggested stomach bezoar formation. Owing to it’s big size, the trichobezoar was removed surgically with a good clinical result. The girl was discharged fully recovered. This case demonstrates the choice of optimum diagnostic and surgical tactics in a child with a giant trichobezoar.
