What Is Moyamoya Disease?

Moyamoya disease is a disorder in which small arteries at the base of the brain progressively become blocked which can result in the development of strokes in the patient. The term “Moyamoya ” is a Japanese one, and it means “Puff of smoke”, which is the appearance of these abnormal arteries on an angiogram test.
