Trichobezoar is one of the rare diseases, which usually occurs in teen.aged girl who has an emotional disturbance and history of trichophagia. We experienced a case of gastric trichobezoar in a 8 year old girl, who had colicky abdominal pain and movable epigastric mass with the history of trichophagia. Diagnosis was suspected by the history of trichophagia and movable epigastric mass and confirmed by UGI series. The gastric mass which extended into the 1st and 2nd portion of the duodenum, was completely removed by gastrostomy and surgical extraction. The case was presented with brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Trichobezoar, Trichophagia, Childhood
