We report a case where the operation site was marked wrongly on the right side of the scalp. It was the timely intervention of a member of the surgical team that the possible mishap in the form of a negligent operation on the wrong site was prevented, hence, the term “missed negligence.” The case is reported for its significance in the field of surgery as a caution and reminder that utmost care should be taken to determine and confirm the site of the surgery.
