    Abstract

    Arteriovenous malformations of the scalp are potential sources of serious bleeding because of their location, inherent weakness, and high flow rates. A 40-year-old man used his vascular lesion as a means of suicide. Selected aspects of the historical background, diagnosis, and treatment of these vascular disorders are described.
