A rare condition that causes a narrowing of the blood vessels that supply blood to the brain. This puts patients at risk for a stroke by limiting the flow of blood to the brain. Moyamoya Disease mainly presents in children, although patients of any age can suffer from the disease. Around the narrowed blood vessel, many smaller vessels grow outward in a cluster to compensate for the blockage, which can further press against sensitive areas of the brain. The first symptoms of Moyamoya include a stroke or series of mini-strokes caused by the constricted blood vessels in the brain.
