Moyamoya disease associated with polycystic kidney disease and eosinophilic granuloma.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
Moyamoya disease has been associated with renal artery stenosis, cerebral hemorrhage, and multiple cranial traumas. We report a unique case of moyamoya disease associated with polycystic kidney disease and eosinophilic granuloma. Although the etiology of moyamoya disease is unknown, a familial pattern of occurrence has been documented. Of particular importance is its presentation with polycystic kidney disease, an autosomal dominant disease, suggesting a hereditary component to the etiology of this unusual vasculitic disease.
