Hyderabad: Doctors at Yashoda Hospitals, Indian state Hyderabad have removed a large hairball from the stomach of an 11-year-old Omani girl.
The young girl was diagnosed with gastro trichobezoar which is an extrememlyrare intestinal condition in humans resulting from the ingestion of hair.
Trichobezoar occurs when a mentally unstable person is involved in obsessive pulling of hair and eating it, which accumulates as a lump in the stomach but in this case the girl has no psychiatric disorders. The girl’s parents were not aware of the situation.
The girl was initially taken to hospital after complaining of pain and swelling in her stomach, as well as loss of appetite and weight loss. Preliminary diagnosis through ultrasound and CT Scan showed an unidentified lump in the stomach.
Dr TlVD Prasad Baby, Consultant Surgical Gastroenterologist Advanced Lapraroscopic Surgeon, led a team of three doctors in the operation to remove the huge bezoar at Yashoda Hospitals in Indian state Hyderabad.
“We performed UGI Endoscopy and detected a ball of hair in her stomach. The entire stomach was filled with hair. The hair could have extended from the stomach into the small intestine. We have operated through laparoscopy to remove gastro trichobezoar. The patient ws progressing well with dietary advice.” Said Dr Prasad Baby.
Followed by an oral liquid diet as instructed by doctors, the patient ws able to walk on the next day of the surgery. She was discharged from the hospital on the third day after the surgery.
