Abstract

Acute stroke is an infrequent disease of pediatric age group patients. MoyaMoya is a rare cerebro vascular disease of unknown etiology. We report a case of 14-year-old male child who presented with right-sided hemiplegia and diagnosed as a MoyaMoya disease. MoyaMoya disease is rare, but important as a cause of cerebral stroke in children. Cerebral revascularization surgery leads to favorable outcome.
