Abstract

Distal peripheral artery aneurysms in moyamoya disease (MMD) remain difficult to treat given their deep location, small size, and fragility. Here, we report two cases of choroidal artery aneurysms associated with MMD who were treated through direct clipping and coil embolization. Timing of aneurysm formation remains unclear, however, annual follow-up DSA for surveillance of hemodynamic status is necessary and prompt treatment of aneurysm should be performed when diagnosed. Moreover, choroidal artery aneurysms may benefit from endovascular coil embolization due to their characteristics.
