We present a case of 36 year old African American female presenting to the Out Patient Clinic with headache which were on and off for 4-6 months and did not relieve on routine medical therapy. It was associated with weakness on right side for last few days. The patient was investigated with CT Angiogram, diagnosed as Moyamoya disease and operated.
