Bezoars are foreign bodies impacted in the digestive tract resulting of their ingestion and accumulation, involving mainly the stomach. The most common types are phytobezoars, containing vegetables, fiber and seed, and the trichobezoar, made of hair. The present case is the description of a 25-year-old female with nonspecific dyspeptic symptoms associated to intestinal habit change. The diagnosis was suggested by computerized tomography in association with clinical history--initially omitted by the patient--of trichophagia for 10 years. Treatment consisted of anterior gastrotomy and remotion of the bezoar.
