Moyamoya disease is a chronic, progressive occlusion of the circle of Willis arteries that leads to the development of characteristic collateral vessels seen on imaging, particularly cerebral angiography. The disease may develop in children and adults, but the clinical features differ. Moyamoya disease occurs predominantly in Japanese individuals but has been found in all races with varying age distributions and clinical manifestations. As a result, moyamoya disease has been under-recognized as a cause of ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes in the Indian subcontinent. At this time, there is no known cure, and existing treatment options are controversial. We here describe the case of a 27-year-old Indian presenting as right-sided hemiparesis with accelerated hypertension.
