    One brother and one sister, of seven siblings, had cirsoid aneurysms of the occipital scalp with underlying skull defects and possible intracranial communication. Another sister had no gross scalp abnormality but radiographs of the skull revealed a small occipital bony defect. This is thought to be the first reported example of familial cirsoid aneurysm of the scalp.
