PANDAS Syndrome (Paediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcus) is a rare disease described in 1998. In this disease, there is a relationship between group A beta haemolytic streptococcal tonsil infections and the exacerbation of neuropsychiatric disorders. A case report of a 9-year-old child with PANDAS syndrome is presented. This child has had no further symptoms after tonsillectomy. The understanding about PANDAS syndrome and tonsillectomy is reviewed.
