A 3-pseudomanifold is a finite connected simplicial 3-complex K such that every triangle inK belongs to precisely two 3-simplices of K the link of eveiy edge in K is a Circuit, and the link of every vertex inK is a closed 2-manifold. It is proved that for every finite set 2 of closed 2-mani- folds, there exists a 3-pseudomanifold K such that the link of every vertex in K is homeomorphic to some S E 2, and every S E 2 is homeomorphic to the link of some vertex in K.
