A 21-year-old female presented with gastric outlet obstruction and a palpable mass in epigastrium and clinical diagnosis of HCC was put forward. US findings were suggestive of band like echogenic structure with total posterior acoustic shadowing. CT findings were characteristic of trichobezoar. Single shot heavily T2 weighted image and BFE CORONAL images were comparable with barium meal projection. In present case we performed barium meal examination, as a last investigation. We have described MR findings and in literature we could trace only one case in which MR findings of trichobezoar with gastric ulcer has been described.
