In brief: Depends.
Adults with moya moya disease can live normal life spans depending on how severe the presentation is, which is usually a stroke.
As long as there aren't severe or frequent strokes, there can be a reasonable life expectancy.

Another concern is seizures which can be difficult to manage. I see a few people with this problem in both my adult and pediatric Epilepsy Clinics.

In brief: Depends
Morbidity and mortality rates are different in adults and children.
The key is to establish the diagnosis as soon as possible as surgical treatment is proven to reduce risk of hemorrhage and neurologic decline.
