Intracranial Hemorrhage due to Moya-moya disease in the pregnancy women is rarely documented. We present a 31-years old woman who had intracranial hemorrhage at 34 weeks of gestation. She had stuporous state(Glouscow coma scale 2-3-5) with normal blood pressure at emergency room. Computed tomography revealed intraventricular hemorrhage and scanty intracerebral hemorrhage at left paraventricular area. External ventricular drainage enabled her symptoms to improve gradually. Additional MRI and angiography revealed finding of Moya-moya disease at left middle cerebral artery. Generally, intracranial hemorrhage during pregnancy, caused by aneurysmal rupture and AVM, is treated extensively regardless of pregnancy. In Moya-moya disease intracranial hemorrhage should be removed with a simple and safe procedure as soon as possible. And cesarean section should be considered in selected cases who has hypertension during labor.
