 Teenage Girl’s Stomach is Home to a Four Pound Hairball
A strange habit of biting hair and chewing chalk turned a 19-year-old girl's stomach to play host to a four pound hairball which had got lodged between her stomach and small intestine.

When she was unable to eat or drink anything for a few days, the teenager was examined at the Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital in Indore last month.

The girl loved to eat her hair and chalk. Doctors operated upon her and a huge hairball was removed from her stomach.

The girl is on the road to recovery.
