Case Study
The article highlights the case of a 7-year-old boy diagnosed with Moyamoya disease (MMD), which presents with movement disorders that includes chorea, dystonia and diskinesias. The patient presented with sudden jerky movements in form of blink, flexion of neck and trunk and abduction of arm and has a history of recurrent ischemic strokes at the age of three years. The case is the first reported sporadic exaggerated startle syndrome associated with MMD.
