When a teenager complained that she hadn't been able to eat or drink for days, doctors decided they should look into the problem. And what they found would put anyone off their dinner - a ball of hair weighing almost 4lbs stuck between her stomach and small intestine.
Led by Dr Parvinder Singh Lubana, the surgeons were able to remove the giant hairball in a successful operation.
The hairball was wrapped around a mass of chalk.
Dr Amit Agarwal, one of the surgeons in the team, told NDTV.com that the woman had developed an intestinal obstruction leading to no intake of food and water for a couple of days.
Incredibly, the hairball is not the largest to be removed from a patient in recent years. In November 2007, doctors in the US reported having found a 10lb hairball inside a woman's stomach.
