    Abstract

    A human skull identified as that of a 16-year-old female who had been reported missing about 3 years before the discovery of the specimen displayed evidence for the assymetrical remodelling of bilateral neurosurgical burr holes. While one of the holes retained its original size and shape, gross evidence for the contralateral lesion had virtually disappeared. Initially, the open lesion was mistakenly suspected to be a recent bullet hole.
