Abstract
Moyamoya disease is a cerebrovascular disorder characterized by progressive stenosis of the distal internal carotid arteries, and in rare cases can occur in association with optic disc coloboma. We describe a 31-year-old man with transient left-sided weakness caused by steno-occlusion of the bilateral internal carotid arteries. A fundoscopic examination revealed a coloboma involving the optic disc of the right eye. Clinicians should be aware of the possibility of moyamoya disease in patients with optic disc coloboma, even when other classic symptoms of this disease are absent. Key Words: Moyamoya disease, Coloboma
