Moyamoya disease is a progressive rare type of cerebrovascular disease marked by stenosis and occlusion of the distal internal carotid arteries and circle of Willis branches, leading to the development of a collateral network of blood vessels at the base of the brain. For Moyamoya angiopathy, endocrinopathies may be risk factors, sequelae, or just coincidental findings. So, it is worth checking and regularly monitoring for these endocrinopathies in patients with Moyamoya angiopathy, aiming for early diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
