What is PANDAS/PANS?
Paediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections
It describes a subset of children or adolescents who have either an abrupt onset of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or Tic Disorder symptoms or an acute worsening of symptoms following a streptococcal infection.
Paediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome
It is the term used to describe the cases where there is a link to symptom onset with other infections, not only streptococcal infections. The more commonly known term P.A.N.D.A.S is a subset of the wider definition of P.A.N.S.
