PANDAS: A Multi-Discipline Perspective on the Strep Illness and Treatment

PANDAS: A Multi-Discipline Perspective on the Strep Illness and Treatment
Friday, April 12, 2019 - 8:00am - 12:00pm

Boys Town National Research Hospital Presents the Patrick E. Brookhouser, M.D. Memorial Lecture

Purpose

Behavior symptoms associated with PANDAS are extremely disruptive for the child and their families. Because of the controversy regarding diagnosis and therapies, larger and more definitive studies which prospectively track symptoms are needed. Prospective pilot data collected from patients could be the source of good data for more controlled multi-institutional studies. This lecture provides information on various biological systems and symptoms associated with PANDAS and optimal management and treatment options to improve patient care.

Objectives

  • Identify the symptoms associated with PANDAS.
  • Explain the temporal relationship between PANDAS and acute strep infections.
  • Discuss that multiple disciplines are required for assessment and treatment of PANDAS.
  • Recognize that prospective data is needed to monitor disease progression and treatment effectiveness.
