GURZU, S  and  JUNG, I. Gastric tricho-wool bezoar in an 18-year-old girl. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2013, vol.51, n.1, pp.33-34. ISSN 2078-5151.

An 18-year-old girl with no psychiatric history presented with abdominal pain. Four months previously she had given birth to a healthy baby. On palpation, a painful abdominal mass was identified in the epigastric region, and gastrotomy was performed. A J-shaped hair-wool ball and two large pieces of sheep's wool were removed. No history of trichotillomania was reported.
