Almost Died With Rapunzel's Syndrome!!



A 38-year-old woman was diagnosed with some unusual disease of eating her own hair. When she began to suffer from severe abdominal pains, she had to remove a ball of giant hair from his stomach. 

The woman, whose identity was not revealed, suffered from nausea, vomiting and severe abdominal pain when she arrived at the hospital. In addition, the woman had lost her appetite and, in that sense, was losing weight with each passing day. She underwent surgery and, to everyone's amazement, had a giant hairball, about six inches in diameter, lodged in her stomach.




With the ball, it also had a small "tail" of hair tied, four centimeters in diameter. The woman was also treated for dehydration, anemia, and malnutrition. After being discharged six days after the operation, she was advised to seek psychic therapy. In fact, the woman suffers from Rapunzel Syndrome, only documented 80 times in medicine. 

This syndrome, which causes the individual to eat his own hair, is initially caused by another disease called trichotillomania, which causes the person to have an irresistible urge to tear off his own hair. 



Rapunzel's syndrome is quite unusual and potentially deadly as it can have various effects and complications.
