Moyamoya disease is a chronic progressive arteriopathy involving the cerebral vessels and is one of the rare causes of young stroke. Etiology can be idiopathic as well secondary to some other primary disease. It does affect the members of the same family but the definite pattern of inheritance has not been found out yet. There are few studies in the literature about the familial presentation of idiopathic Moyamoya disease, most of them from East Asian countries, which is why there are no common opinions and guidelines regarding the follow up and management of asymptomatic family members of such patients. We present and discuss the case reports of two family members with Moyamoya disease from India to further emphasise upon the need of research and long term follow up studies.
