PANS/PANDAS Awareness Day
PANS/PANDAS AWARENESS DAY
Consider PANS/PANDAS when you see a patient with a sudden and dramatic onset of unwanted thoughts, fears, rituals, obsessive compulsive disorder, and/or an overall abrupt decline in mental health.
Strep or other infections, such as Mycoplasma pneumonia, influenza, upper respiratory infections, or sinusitis, may be triggering the neurobehavioral changes and psychological distress.
PANS/PANDAS is treatable. Treatment is a three pronged approach that addresses the source (infections), the immune system dysfunction, and the symptoms.
