Moyamoya syndrome is classified as a rare blood vessel condition. Here, the carotid artery in the skull is blocked or narrowed, creating a significant gap in the blood flow to the brain. As a cover-up measure, tiny blood vessels, called the Moyamoya, develop at the base of your brain.
Causes of Moyamoya Syndrome
Research says that the Moyamoya Syndrome is mostly seen in Japan, Korea, China, and other parts of Asia. This study suggests that it could be genetically inherited. However, the pinpoint cause is unidentified.
