Abstract

We present 2 patients with Moyamoya disease undergoing revascularization surgery who developed transient intraoperative central diabetes insipidus with spontaneous resolution in the immediate postoperative period. We speculate that patients with Moyamoya disease may be predisposed to a transient acute-on-chronic insult to the arginine vasopressin-producing portion of their hypothalamus mediated by anesthetic agents. We describe our management, discuss pertinent literature, and offer possible mechanisms of this transient insult. We hope to improve patient safety by raising awareness of this potentially catastrophic complication.
