No info: Pseudo moya moya ,ischemic stroke means that there was an ischemic stroke similar to what occurs with the vascular condition moya moya but with unilateral cerebrovascular changes ("puff of smoke" micro revascularization around an occlusion) rather than bilateral. It does not involve the MCA. It has been noted in sickle cell disease and SLE among other conditions.These and other possible underlying conditions should be considered. Your repeat findings are reassuring but recurrence risk is not known..
