Bezoars are concretions of foreign materials such as hair or fruit fibres found in the gastrointestinal tract. They usually occur in the stomach in patients with psychiatric disorders. Synchronous presentation in jejunum or distal ileum may be present. However, isolated ileal trichobezor due to ingested hair in children is rare, more so when there is no obvious ileal stricture. We present such a case with review of literature.
