Bezoars are concretions of foreign indigestible material accumulating in the gastrointestinal tract leading to intraluminal mass formation that impairs the gastrointestinal motility and can lead to gastric obstruction of the small or the large bowel. There are different types of bezoars, named according to the material they are made of. These include phytobezoar, lactobezoar, pharmacobezoar, trichobezoar, and polybezoar. Trichobezoars (hair ball) are usually located in the stomach but may extend through the pylorus into the duodenum and small bowel (Rapunzel syndrome).
