PANS, PANDAS, and Autoimmune Encephalitis

Urgent Childhood and Adult Psychiatric Details So Often Overlooked

So many kids these days have rages, OCD, tics, aggressive behavior, prolonged tantrums and anxiety all living downstream from PANS, PANDAS and Autoimmune Encephalitis.

If these profound and puzzling symptoms prevail you must look into PANS (Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome), PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Strep) and Autoimmune Encephalitis – especially if your child exhibited sudden behavioral changes or a markedly unpredictable developmental regression. PANS PANDAS Immunity brain

Autism, ADHD, Executive Function, and Sensory Processing Disorder

Even kids with autism, ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorder should be evaluated for this condition as some practitioners believe that nearly 2/3 of kids with neurodevelopmental disorders also suffer from PANS. As you listeners know, and those of you who have followed our updates over the years, immunity is a relentless and ubiquitous focus in my offices for treatment failure for many years.

The good news: if you identify it correctly and take the necessary steps treatment failure will often, quite surprisingly, turn around.

Note Well

  • PANS is an umbrella term that includes diagnoses such as Lyme disease, PANDAS, PITANDS (Pediatric Infection-Triggered Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders), and Autoimmune Encephalitis — all of which describe a condition marked by concerning psychiatric and physical symptoms that often, but now always, appear suddenly.
  • Children in the U.S. now suffer from PANS at a very concerning rate – it’s far more prevalent than many assume.
