ABSTRACT: A 5 year-old girl was presented with intestinal obstruction and on exploration a trichobezoar of the terminal ileum was detected. Isolated Ileal trichobezoar is a rare presentation especially in presence of surgically untampered normal gut. The patient was managed by ileo-ileal resection anastamosis and had a smooth uneventful postoperative recovery.
