Congenital arteriovenous malformation (AVM) of the scalp is a rare lesion, which usually is easily diagnosed. A case of a newborn infant with a midline occipital soft tissue mass that clinically simulated an encephalocele is reported. Postcontrast CT was useful in ruling out encephalocele and suggesting the diagnosis of AVM.
