Educational Need

Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections, or PANDAS, is a mysterious presentation of neuropsychiatric symptoms with sudden and dramatic onset triggered following a streptococcal (strep) infection. An estimated 1 in 200 individuals are impacted, with onset primarily occuring during childhood. Clinical presentation is different for every patient and symptoms can easily be mistaken for numerous common neurological disorders. Because of this alignment of symptomology, children with PANDAS are oftentimes misdiagnosed as having a psychiatric illness and may be treated solely with psychotropic medications, failing to solve the underlying problem. PANDAS is not a rare condition - it is rarely diagnosed. Symptoms can carry into adulthood and significantly impair the patient's quality of life if not managed appropriately. It is important that healthcare providers are competent with differential diagnosis and evidence-based guidelines to ensure PANDAS is identified early and treated accurately to improve patient outcomes and achieve remission.
