Abstract

Moyamoya disease is characterised by stenosis or occlusion in the distal portions of the internal carotid artery. There is the associated finding of a fine network of abnormal vessels ('moyamoya' vessels, that is 'puff of smoke' like appearance) in the region of the basal ganglia. We experienced two cases of moyamoya disease which was confirmed by carotid angiogram. Case 1 had complaints of speech disturbance and clonic movement of right leg. Case 2 had been suffered from transitory repetitive paroxysmal hemiplegia. Review of literatures and references on moyamoya disease was done briefly.
