Moyamoya disease is a chronic nonatherosclerotic, noninflammatory cerebrovascular disease characterized by slow progressive stenosis of the intracranial vessels. The clinical presentations of moyamoya disease differ considerably for both children and adults. Interestingly, moyamoya disease continues to remain as an “unsolved mystery” till date, and its occurrence in the nonendemic region of the upper part of Brahmaputra Valley is rare. In this context, the author wishes to report the clinical study of an 18-year-old young adolescent boy exhibiting sudden-onset dizziness, severe excruciating headache, vomiting, abnormal behavior, and urinary and fecal incontinence.
