Cerebral stroke is a rare disease in children. Moyamoya (MM) is one of the infrequent cerebrovascular diseases with unknown etiology. We report an 8 year-old-boy with chief complain of sudden onset bilateral parietal lobe headache. He mentioned that his headache was first started about three weeks ago and was associated with visual disturbance. His mother declared that the boy developed gait problems few days later and only could walk with assistance. He was diagnosed with MM disease. After, medical treatment his symptoms were mildly improved and because of his family disagreement cerebral revascularization surgery was not performed.
