Abstract

A 31-year-old female with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) presented with left hemiparesis. One year prior to this presentation she had been diagnosed with bihemispheric cerebral infarctions associated with moyamoya syndrome. During her current presentation, MRI revealed acute infarction of the right hemisphere and MRA revealed occlusion of the right internal carotid artery (ICA), and aggravation of the preexisting stenosis of the contralateral ICA and ipsilateral posterior cerebral artery compared to the previous MRA. We report herein a case of progressive moyamoya syndrome associated with PNH.
