Moyamoya disease

Moyamoya disease is a disease of blood vessels in the brain, specifically the internal carotid arteries and the arteries that branch from them. Blood flow in the brain is reduced by narrowing these vessels. Moyamoya disease is widespread in women's thirties or forties, and it begins either around age 5 or in a person's forties. In addition, the tiny blood vessels that grow can develop bulges or break open, resulting in bleeding in the brain. People affected by recurring headaches, compulsory jerking procedures, or a decline in thinking ability may occur. If the condition is not addressed, the signs of moyamoya disease can get worse over time. In comparison to other conditions, such as neurofibromatosis type 1, sickle cell disease, or Graves disease, certain people have the blood vessel changes typical of moyamoya disease. These individuals are reported to have moyamoya syndrome.
