Moyamoya disease is a rare, progressive cerebrovascular disease marked by stenosis and occlusion of the distal internal carotid arteries and branches of the circle of Willis, leading to creation of a collateral network of blood vessels at the base of the brain. It has been found to be a significant cause of childhood stroke. We would like to present two cases of moyamoya angiopathy with a growth hormone deficiency, in 13-year-old and 10-year-old brothers in Iraq. Hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction may complicate Moyamoya angiopathy, which is attributed to chronic cerebrovascular insufficiency. Therefore, it is worth checking and regularly monitoring for this problem, especially in growing children and adolescents, to achieve normal growth and development.
