Background: Moya Moya is a cerebrovasculopathy of the terminal internal carotid arteries and the proximal anterior and middle cerebral arteries. It is comparatively more common in Japan compared to Western countries.
Case Report: We present a patient of South-East Asian origin diagnosed with Moya Moya, confirmed on magnetic resonance angiography and later computerized tomography angiography. She was managed conservatively through med- ical management and lifestyle advice, and has now been enlisted into the national Moya Moya database in the UK. We believe this report will help advance our understanding on Moya Moya and help to elucidate the impor- tance of a combined medical and radiological approach to this condition. 
Conclusions: We believe this report will help advance our understanding on Moya Moya and help to elucidate the impor- tance of a combined medical and radiological approach to this condition.
