Moyamoya disease (MMD) is chronic cerebrovascular disease with progressive stenosis in various vessels of cerebral circulation leading to the development of collateral vessels. Patients may exhibit ischemic or hemorrhagic complications. Surgical management is usually complicated by impairment in cerebral blood flow and metabolism. The goal of anesthetic management of such patients is to maintain adequate oxygen demand supply balance. We present a case of MMD in a 6-year-old male child and discuss anesthetic management of such patients undergoing indirect vascularization procedures.
