      Hi Lori,
      I don't know the exact condition but I have heard of a connection with certain eye conditions and moyamoya.
      Sorry I can't be more specific.

She doesn't have any malformations however she has an optic pathway glioma(tumor in her optic nerve) but it was caused by another disorder called Neurofibromatosis which she was diagnosed with at age 6 months. I have learned alot about MMD since her diagnosis but I did not know that it also caused optic malformations. I wish you and your family all the best.Your daughter will be in our thoughts and prayers. Best of luck,Jennifer
