Moyamoya-like disease in Down's syndrome

Pediatr Neurosurg. 1990-1991;16(1):14-6. doi: 10.1159/000120496.


We present a case of a 6-year-old girl with Down's syndrome who developed recurrent hemipareses. Cerebral angiography showed bilateral supraclinoid stenosis of internal carotid arteries and complexes of dilated collateral vessels, consistent with moyamoya disease.
