Scalp cirsoid aneurysm, also known as arteriovenous fistula, is a rare condition that commonly presents with a pulsatile cutaneous mass. Angiography is the gold standard for diagnosing this rare lesion. Here, we report the case of a 21-year-old woman who presented with a 7-year subcutaneous pulsatile mass over the suboccipital region. Computed tomographic angiography and conventional angiography confirmed the diagnosis of scalp cirsoid aneurysm. No residual or recurrent fistulas were observed after treatment with only endovascular embolization.
