RAMIREZ-QUINONES, Jorge A. et al. Enfermedad de Moyamoya: reporte de un casoMoyamoya disease: A case report. Rev Neuropsiquiatr [online]. 2015, vol.78, n.3, pp.165-170. ISSN 0034-8597.

Moyamoya disease is characterized by progressive stenosis of the internal carotid artery and its main branches. The cause of the disease is unknown, ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke are the main manifestations (the former is more common) that disproportionately affect children and young adults, and is consider a diagnostic challenge. Its presence is confirmed by digital subtraction angiography (DSA) and the management may be medical or surgical, being the latter associated with a better prognosis. We report the case of a Peruvian male of Japanese ancestry without risk factors, with an intracranial hemorrhage who was finally diagnosed with Moyamoya disease.

Keywords : Moyamoya disease; cerebral arterial diseases; cerebral hemorrhage.
