Bezoar is a foreign body in the gastrointestinal tract, mainly with localization in the stomach, consisting of tightly knotted hair or plant fibers and various swallowed substances. Most often, in both adults and children, there are phyto- and trichobezoars. In the diagnosis of bezoars, data of anamnesis, ultrasound examination, and fibrogastroduodenoscopy are of great importance. Treatment of dense and large bezoars is surgical. Less dense and small bezoars can be removed endoscopically, sometimes in several stages. A clinical case of diagnosis and treatment of trichobezoar in a child is given in the article.
Key words: bezoar, stomach, trichobezoar, clinic, diagnostics, children.
