Abstract
Trichobezoars are retained clusters of swallowed hairs seen most commonly in adolescent girls. Many of these patients have some underlying psychiatric problem and as this condition is often associated with few or no symptoms, the onset of this condition leads to a delayed presentation. Trichobezoars are most commonly managed by open surgical techniques and there are only a few reports that have used the laparoscopic method for its removal. This report presents the suc- cessful laparoscopic management with port site incision extension for the extraction of giant trichobezoar in a 16-year-old female patient.

Key words: Trichobezoar, laparoscopic, Rapunzel, gastrotomy
