Abstract: We report a vascular leiomyoma of the extracranial scalp with a small deformity on the skull in a child mimicking a dermoid cyst. The tumor was removed surgically, and histologic examination revealed a vascular leiomyoma. A small deformity-like dimple on the skull improved without evidence of recurrence. The early surgical excision yielded good results.
