Recurrent intracranial hemorrhage in an adult with moyamoya disease: case report, radiographic studies and pathology.
Moyamoya disease is an unusual vascular disorder highlighted by progressive bilateral internal carotid artery occlusion and collateralization of intracranial blood flow. Recurrent multifocal cerebral ischemic events and isolated intracerebral hemorrhage are known to occur in this disorder. We report a 52 year old man who over a nine year period had four apparent intracranial hemorrhages. Serial angiograms demonstrated the evolution of moyamoya disease. Pathologic examination confirmed multiple vascular lesions, including two that were clinically silent.
