Jacob Freeman et al. Pediatr Neurosurg.

Abstract

Occurrence of moyamoya syndrome in a patient with Smith-Magenis syndrome (SMS) has previously been reported once in a 10-year-old Asian female. We report a second case of moyamoya in a patient with SMS, in a now 25-year-old Asian female diagnosed with both conditions as a child. In addition to describing her medical and surgical history, we provide a detailed report of her omental transposition, in which the omental circulation was anastomosed to the superior thyroid artery and external jugular vein. To our knowledge, this is the first report of omental transposition for moyamoya in which omental vessels are anastomosed to vessels in the neck, as well as the second report of moyamoya in a patient with SMS.

Keywords: Cerebral infarction; Moyamoya; Omental transposition; Smith-Magenis syndrome.
