Abstract

The article discusses the clinical picture, diagnosis, and treatment of a rare pathologic condition of the cerebral vessels known by the Japanese name "moyamoya". Six cases with this disease among adults are described. Three patients had ischemic attacks, two young females were found to have intracerebral hematomas which were successfully evacuated. In one case the vascular anomaly became evident after a craniocerebral trauma and was manifested by subarachnoid hemorrhage and infarction in the subcortical structures.
