PANS (Pediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome) and PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections) are autoimmune diagnoses that are characterized by neurological symptoms such as OCD and anxiety, tics, behavioral issues, sleep disorders, and more. There are often overlaps between these symptoms and those of autism. Estimated rates for PANS/PANDAS are around 1:200, but that number may be higher in children with autism. Discover the symptoms and treatment options for PANS/PANDAS this month with TACA.

The Autism Community in Action (TACA) provides general information regarding medical research, treatment options, therapies and nutrition to the autism community. The information comes from a variety of sources and is not independently verified by TACA. Nothing presented in print or at meetings should be construed as medical or legal advice. Always consult your child's doctor regarding his or her individual needs.
