A 13-year-old girl presented with a history of not being well during the past six months. The ultrasound examination showed an epigastric mass, which was diagnosed as a bezoar within the stomach in upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. The patient was managed by operative evacuation. It was interesting that such a large bezoar did not cause any significant obstruction for the patient.
