PANS & PANDAS and Communicative Disorder in Children.


PANS stands for Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome

PANDAS stands for Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections 

PANS encompasses whole group of acute onset cases of obsessive compulsive disorder whereas, PANDAS associated with specific infection and so it is one specific type.

PANS & PANDAS are infection-induced autoimmune conditions that disrupt child’s normal neurologic functioning.

Insight about PANS:

PANS can be triggered by numerous infections which includes mycoplasma pneumonia, herpes simplex, H1N1 virus and other viruses which causes an abrupt onset of neuropsychiatric symptoms.

In this condition an immunological reaction takes place when your child is exposed to infectious agents. This infection triggers misdirected immune reaction where antibodies produced attacks on healthy tissues of brain or portion of brain instead of foreign bodies and that leads to inflammation of portion of brain.

That particular area of brain which controls movements and behavior.

Due to inflammation there is sudden onset of abrupt neuropsychiatric symptoms. They are as follows:

  • Obsessive compulsive disorder 
  • Anxiety
  • Tics
  • Obsessive thoughts
  • Eating restrictions 
  • Personality changes 
  • Emotional liability 

Insight about PANDAS:

PANDAS can be triggered by STREPTOCOCCAL INFECTION which disrupts child’s neurologic activity.

Here in this condition when immune system produces antibodies intended to fight infection and instead, mistakenly they attacks healthy tissues of brain which results into inflammation of brain inducing sudden dramatic onset of symptoms like movement disorder, neuropsychiatric symptoms and abnormal neurologic behavior ‘overnight out of blue’

Inflammation in that particular area of brain which is responsible for speech, tics and emotions.

Some of the neuropsychiatric symptoms are as follows: 

  • Abrupt onset
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Motor or vocal tics
  • Anxiety 
  • Urinary frequency
  • Sleep disturbances


  • Signs and symptoms.
  • No conclusive blood tests or neurological tests to detect.
  • Lab test can be made for streptococcal infection or blood test for antibodies.  
  • Observation of suddenness after such infections can be helpful to detect.

Homeopathy Treatment :

Homeopathy clears all deviations develops because of infections and removes toxicity, no antibiotics treatment requires. First 120 days of medicine child shows improvement in intensity and periodicity of symptoms, and next 120 days child come out from this syndromes.
