Moyamoya: an Uncommon Variant of Stroke in Children.
J Bahria Uni Med Dental Coll Jan ;8(3):194-6.
Moyamoya is a rare cause of stroke in children. It is an infrequent cerebrovascular disorder of unknown etiology. We are reporting a case of a 7-year-old girl who presented with an acute history of left-sided weakness. On imaging she was diagnosed with Moyamoya disease. CT Angiogram revealed an occlusion of the right middle cerebral artery typical of Moyamoya disease. The child improved with conservative therapy.
