Paediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections (PANDAS) and paediatric acute-onset neuropsychiatric syndrome (PANS) have been suggested to be a result of a disordered immune response following an infection causing neuropsychiatric symptoms. Although the diagnosis PANDAS/PANS has been controversial, an increasing attention has been paid to the diagnosis, pathophysiology and treatment during the recent years.
