Swedo and colleagues defined this disorder in 1998 as a syndrome related to Group A streptoccoccus (GAS) infection with neurological issues, such as motor hyperactivation and choreiform movements. The progress of the disorder may be described as wax-and-waning, apart… Expand

TLDR
In this study, IVIG has been shown to be effective in most of the cases and no complications have been reported during the treatment. Expand
Diagnosis in PANDAS: An Update
TLDR
This review offers a compilation of the most important studies performed to date regarding the clinical presentation and potential biological markers of PANDAS, and suggests the refinement of some aspects in the current diagnosis criteria. Expand
Immune system and obsessive-compulsive disorder
TLDR
Although the exact relationships between OCD and immune processes are still unclear, available literature supports their role in the pathophysiology of OCD, while providing a fascinating hint for possible immunotherapeutic treatments in OCD. Expand
Treatment of PANDAS and PANS: a systematic review
TLDR
It is determined that rigorously conducted research regarding treatments for PANDAS is scarce, and published studies have a high risk of bias, and further research is needed in which promising treatment strategies for PandAS and other variants of OCD with proposed autoimmune etiology are rigorously investigated.

TLDR
The mnemonic MEND A MIND is explicate as a useful tool for aiding the clinician at the point of care in formulating a broad differential for organic causes of mood disturbance in patients with ADHD. Expand

TLDR
It was found out that chronic inflammatory ENT diseases altered the vegetative pattern depending on the localization of the pathology: in case of adenoid vegetations there was a parasympathetic vegetative dysfunction, and in cases of hyperplasia of the tonsils, it was of the sympathetic type.

From Research Subgroup to Clinical Syndrome: Modifying the PANDAS Criteria to Describe PANS (Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric
TLDR
Modifying the PANDAS criteria to eliminate etiologic factors and to clarify the initial clinical presentation produced three potential diagnostic criteria for PANS, which are discussed in detail. Expand
Moving from PANDAS to CANS.
TLDR
A broader concept of childhood acute neuropsychiatric symptoms (CANS) is proposed, which requires a comprehensive history and examination, consideration of a differential diagnosis, an active search for a specific etiology through appropriate laboratory testing, and treatment with the most appropriate therapy. Expand
Pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections.
TLDR
Evidence does not support a recommendation for long-term antibiotic prophylaxis or immunomodulatory therapy in children with PANDAS, and based on only a few studies, positive results have been found using antibiotic proPHylaxis and immunomODulatory therapy. Expand
Characterization of the pediatric acute-onset neuropsychiatric syndrome phenotype.
TLDR
The sudden, acute onset of neuropsychiatric symptoms, high frequency of comorbidities, and poor quality of life capture the PANS subgroup as suddenly and severely impaired youth. Expand

TLDR
A consensus statement is presented proposing recommendations for the diagnostic evaluation of youth presenting with PANS and the most urgently needed studies in this field are set forth. Expand
