We herein report a 26-year young female who experienced sudden onset loss of consciousness and unilateral limb weakness (side not recalled) on her postpartum Day 1, of her first pregnancy 2 years back, followed by gradual recovery of her motor weakness, but with residual deficits in speech, comprehension, cognition and memory. Her neuroimaging now shows old large bilateral middle and posterior cerebral artery territorial infarcts. Angiogram revealed non-visualisation of bilateral internal carotid and extensive “smoke-like” collateral Moya-Moya circulation in brain. However, interesting additional findings were bilateral extracranial (cervical portion) narrowing of proximal internal carotids up to carotid bulb, the so called “Champagne bottle neck” sign.
