Material is presented from the successful analysis of a sixteen-year-old girl with the symptoms in the title. The patient had vomited and eaten body hair as a child; when a brother was born (patient was four years old), vomiting stopped, but hair ingestion increased. Sperling explains this as a transition from a psychosomatic to a fetishistic relationship to the mother. Dynamics on oral, anal, and phallic levels are discussed.
