A rare outcome of iron deficiency and pica: Rapunzel syndrome in a 5-year-old child iron deficiency and pica.
Turk J Gastroenterol 2014; 25(1):100-2TJ

Abstract

Bezoar is defined as the accumulation of organic or nonbiological substances inside the gastrointestinal system. Trichobezoars are the most frequently detected ones and are mostly present in patients with neuropsychiatric disorders. The continuance of the trichobezoar tail-shaped extension over the duodenum and jejunum is described in Rapunzel syndrome. Both conditions are rarely reported in children. The present case submitted here is related to a 5-year-old girl referred with an abdominal mass and anemia, diagnosed with Rapunzel syndrome and developing trichobezoar due to iron deficiency and pica.
