Henan surgeons remove 0.5kg lump of hair from 12-year-old girl's stomach

Surgeons in Henan have removed a 0.5kg lump of hair from the stomach of a 12-year old girl who had a one year history of wasting. The girl's mother said her daughter used to have long hair down to her waist and often put it in her mouth, but she never imagined she was eating and swallowing it. When she started to lose weight and go off her food, she was taken to the hospital for examination. A CT scan revealed the stomach blockage, and the hair was removed in a one hour operation.
