The article focuses on thalamic hemorrhage in moyamoya disease. Cerebral basal rate mirabile or Moyamoya disease, characterized by an abnormal cerebrovascular network with bilateral occlusion of the internal carotid artery, has been reported frequently in Japan. Researchers recently examined a middle-aged woman with Moyamoya disease who had thalamic hemorrhage as an initial symptom. There was no history of high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, or any other neurologic accident. Family history was unremarkable. Routine laboratory tests including hematology, urinalysis, stool specimen, and blood chemistry were all within normal limits.
