Haemangiomata of the occipital bone are less common than those of the calvarium. They are much less common than the other axial haemangiomata and the least common of the haemangiomata of the skeleton. (Roy et al.1973, Wyke 19749). Common carotid and selective internal and external carotid angiographies for this lesion were done by many (Attallah and Nassar 1970, Davis et al. 1966, Sargent et al. 1965, Simmons and Wolpert 1969), but dural venous sinographies of this lesion were not found in the neurosurgical literature. Recently we studied a case of occipital haemangioma by carotid angiography, superior longitudinal sinus and left lateral sinus venographies and the same is reported here.
