Since the introduction of expansion technique by Neuman(1957), the use of it has been repeatedly adjusted to the breast reconstruction, head and neck reconstruction and treatment of male pattern baldness, and so on, by the improvement of expansion devices and advancement of expansion techniques. We also used this technique in 5 patients who have scalp tumor, either benign or malignant, for 3 years(from 2000 to 2003) and specific complications were not found except wide scars. This technique has shown more excellent result than any other techniques already used and has made it possible to cover the scalp defect without the loss of hair in donor site, so we report this paper and then can ascertain the further benefits, such as the effective coverage of scalp defect by hair bearing normal scalp.
