A case of successful replantation of a totally avulsed scalp in a 19-year-old woman is presented. Although severely traumatized, about 90 percent of the surface of the replanted scalp survived. Only one artery (left superficial temporal) and four veins were anastomosed, sufficient enough to revascularize the entire scalp.
