Seventy-six cases of moyamoya disease were encountered between 1977 to 1985 in our institute. Forty-five of them were males and 31 females. They were 4–57 years of age with an average of 22.9 years. Their clinical presentations showed evidence of intracranial hemorrhage in 45 cases (59.2%) and cerebral ischemia in 31 (40.8%) (Table 1).
