ABSTRACT: Trichobezoar is a known entity. Recurrent trichobezoar is extremely rare. We report our series of gastrointestinal bezoars seen during the past 10 years including a case of recurrent trichobezoar. We emphasize the need for treating the psychosocialaspect of the disease besides its surgical management.
