Rapunzel syndrome: a case report and review.
J Gastrointest Surg 2008; 12(9):1612-4JG

Abstract

We report a 14-year-old girl who presented with epigastric pain, vomiting, and an upper abdominal mass. A diagnosis of trichobezoar was made on ultrasound and she went on to have a laparotomy, where a large trichobezoar was extracted with a tail that extended into the small intestine.
