Moyamoya Disease

A chronic cerebral vasculopathy primarily occurring in childhood and characterized by slowly progressive carotid artery narrowing and occlusion at the base of the brain. An extensive network of anastomoses forms between branches of the carotid arteries, resulting in a characteristic angiographic appearance

Symptoms Of Moyamoya Disease

The list of signs and symptoms mentioned in various sources for Moyamoya Disease includes the 10 symptoms listed below: -
  • Stroke
  • Recurrent transient ischemic attacks
  • Hemiparesis
  • Seizures
  • Disturbed consciousness
  • Speech deficits (aphasia)
  • Sensory impairments
  • Cognitive impairments
  • Involuntary movements
  • Vision problems

Is There Any Treatment?

There are several types of revascularization surgery that can restore blood flow to the brain by opening narrowed blood vessels or by bypassing blocked arteries. Children usually respond better to revascularization surgery than adults, but the majority of individuals have no further strokes or related problems after surgery.

What Is The Prognosis?

Without surgery, the majority of individuals with Moyamoya disease will experience mental decline and multiple strokes because of the progressive narrowing of arteries.

Without treatment, Moyamoya disease can be fatal as the result of intracerebral hemorrhage.
