Laparoscopic treatment of giant gastric trichobezoar
Trichobezoar is a rare condition that may pose a diagnostic challenge. Patients with this condition often have an underlying psychiatric illness. The condition should be entertained, especially in young females. We report a 32-year-old female patient with complaints of early satiety, nausea and weight loss (10Kg for the past 1 year). The patient has a history of family abuse (domestic violence from her father) and obsessive-compulsive disorder with trichotillomania. We decided to treat the condition laparoscopically. A four-trocar technique was used (two 10mm and two 5mm trocars). The postoperative period was uneventful. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 3 without any complaint.
