She camel of two-year-old presented to Veterinary Teaching Hospital, King Faisal University, with a history of inability to swallow and there was food and water regurgitation for one day before. Palpation revealed clear visible mass on neck region about 105 cm caudal to the head. Radiography and endoscopic examination revealed an oval-shaped foreign body embedded in the oesophageal lumen in the level distal third of neck. The foreign body was successfully removed using cervical esophagotomy under general anesthesia. Successful oesophagostomy revealed trichobezoar of 45 g weight and 85X75X42 mm volume. The trichobezoar removed from the oesophagus was the cause of oesophageal obstruction.
