After a three-hour-long surgery, a ball of hair weighing around 1.5 kg has been removed from the stomach of a 25-year-old woman at the Government-run Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital in Indore.

Dr R K Mathur, who led the five-member team of doctors which conducted the surgery on Monday, said the woman's condition was stable.

The woman suffered from a mental disorder which led her to tear out and chew the hair from her head. Over a period of time the hair formed a hard lump inside the stomach, he said.
