Core Tip

Core Tip: As we all known that moyamoya syndrome (MMS) is a special subtype of intracranial arterial disease. Herein, we analyzed the clinical characteristics and prognosis of MMS-related ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke in patients with psoriasis retrospectively, and also, analyzed the probable mechanisms of psoriasis-related MMS, so as to make a reference for diagnosis and early etiology treatment. Finally we suspect that psoriasis may be a potential risk factor of MMS formation. Whereby, we considered that MMS should be screened in patients with psoriasis when they presented neurological symptoms.
