We treated a case of postoperative osteomyelitis and epidural abscess in the left temporal and parietal region. The scalp and skull defect following debridement was reconstructed immediately with an arterialized occipitoparietal osteocutaneous flap that was supplied proximally by the occipital artery and distally by the superficial temporal artery. This method is one of the alternative methods for small to moderately sized skull and scalp defects in the temporal, parietal, and occipital areas without available superficial temporal artery.
