Resumen

ANZIETA V, Juan et al. Intestinal obstruction due to a tríchobezoar or Rapunzel Syndrome: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2008, vol.136, n.8, pp.1027-1030. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872008000800010.

Rapunzel syndrome or gastrointestinal trichobezoar is caused by hair ingestión. The diagnosis may be suspected in young females with important weight loss, who deny hair eating. We report a 16 year-old female consulting in the emergency room for abdominal pain. She was subjected to an exploratory laparotomy and a big mass was palpated in the stomach. A gastrostomy and enterostomy were performed and a 17x6x5 cm tríchobezoar was extracted. The patient had an uneventful postoperative outcome and was derived to Psychiatry.

Palabras clave : Abdomen, acute; Bezoars; Gastric oulet obstruction.
