Özet

Trichobezoars present with stomach ache and with a mass in the stomach. It's common in the young and middle-aged women having psychiatric disorder, presenting with stomach ache and existence of mass in the stomach. Although it's one of the rare causes of anaemia it should be considered when dealing with cases of chronic and unresponsive anaemia.
