Patients undergoing cerebral revascularization surgery have a relatively high incidence of wound complications. We report a case of heterotopic epithelialization of the dura presenting as a non-healing scalp wound after an extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) arterial bypass. The scalp wound was revised twice without healing. During the third revision, epithelial tissue was found growing on the dura and was removed. After the epithelial tissue was removed, the wound healed without further complications. This case illustrates the importance of thoroughly examining a non-healing wound to find the cause.
