Moyamoya Disease

Moyamoya Disease

Moyamoya disease is characterized by progressive narrowing of vasculature of the brain. Vessels blockage consequently causes seizures and stroke. Moyamoya is a Japanese word which roughly translates into 'hazy' or 'puffy', the name suitable for puffy or cloudy appearance of blood vessels on angiogram. The patient usually presents with epilepsy, hemiparesis, transient ischemic attacks, and cognitive and memory impairment. The management involves medications and revascularization.
