Abstract: A 3-pseudomanifold is a finite connected simplicial 3-complex $ \mathcal{K}$ such that every triangle in $ \mathcal{K}$ belongs to precisely two 3-simplices of $ \mathcal{K}$, the link of every edge in $ \mathcal{K}$ is a circuit, and the link of every vertex in $ \mathcal{K}$ is a closed 2-manifold. It is proved that for every finite set $ \sum $ of closed 2-manifolds, there exists a 3-pseudomanifold $ \mathcal{K}$ such that the link of every vertex in $ \mathcal{K}$ is homeomorphic to some $ S\, \in \,\sum $, and every $ S\, \in \,\sum $ is homeomorphic to the link of some vertex in $ \mathcal{K}$.
