Service Description

PANS1 (formerly PANDAS2) is an acronym for Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome. This diagnosis is still controversial, yet is gaining support due to many publications illustrating a link between acute/febrile illnesses and an abrupt onset of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), tics, and neuropsychiatric symptoms. The neuropsychiatric symptoms may include: anxiety, emotional lability and/or depression, irritability, aggression and/or severely oppositional behaviors, behavioral regression, deterioration in school performance, and somatic signs and symptoms, including sleep disturbances, enuresis or urinary frequency. A diagnosis of PANS is made when the symptoms cannot be better explained by known disorders such as Sydenham’s chorea, Tourette’s, lupus, etc.
