✓ A vascular malformation (“cirsoid aneurysm”) of the frontal scalp was excised from an 8-year-old girl. Eighteen years later, during her second pregnancy, the malformation recurred. Despite the presence of an underlying bone defect, arteriography excluded an intracranial extension. The frequency of association of vascular malformations of the scalp with cerebral vascular malformations is reviewed, and the need for careful arteriography reiterated.
