Abstract

Case Description: Report of cases of 12-year-old girls, experiencing trichotillomania and trichophagia, which causes the formation of trichobezoar. Complaints in the form of a lump in the upper left abdomen especially enlarged after eating. An abdominal CT scan, a picture of a foreign body in the stomach is thought to be a trichobezoar. Laparotomy was performed, and trichobezoar was found. The patient recovered well and was consulted to the Psychiatry department for psychiatric therapy

Most cases of trichobezoar require surgical therapy, also require long-term treatment and psychiatric monitoring to prevent the trichobezoar recurrence.
