Bezoars are rare foreign body masses or concretions formed in the stomach and small bowel, which are found in less than 0.5% of patients undergoing upper gastrointestinal endoscopies. We report a 9-year-old female without psychiatric history who was subjected to an exploratory laparotomy due to a large abdominal mass and food intolerance. A gastrotomy was performed and a 25 cm × 15 cm trichobezoar was extracted.
