Trichobezoar as cause of ileus with several perforations of the small intestine in a 15-year-old girl
A 15-year-old girl was admitted to the paediatric ward due to abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhoea. Her symptoms could not be explained by the clinical examinations, blood samples or ultrasound, but she had a history of tricho­phagia. A CT-scan showed gastric retention, and an endoscopy revealed a trichobezoar, which was removed by a laparotomy. Furthermore, a smaller bezoar and three perforations were found in the proximal part of the small intestine. The treatment of trichobezoars should include surgery as well as multidisciplinary involvement to prevent future trichophagia.
