Abstract

Abstract Trichobezoars can occur in young women who have a history of trichotillomania, trichophagia, gastric dysmotility, and psychiatric dysfunction. A 6-year-old anorexic girl presented with a fixed right-upper-quadrant abdominal mass. Exploratory celiotomy for a duodenal trichobezoar led to removal of the large foreign body, via a duodenotomy, and prompted a Ladd procedure, in which the duodenum was moved from beneath the compressing superior mesenteric artery to relieve underlying duodenal narrowing.
