Özet

In recent years, PANDAS has been frequently described as a type of childhood neuropsychiatric disorder. Obsessive-compulsive symptoms, tics and other neuropsychiatric changes may occur after group A-beta hemolytic streptococcal (GABHS) infection. Especially treatment of PANDAS is unclear and the debate about this continues. Early antibiotic treatment was useful in this case of PANDAS. Early approach and practices for treatment are also discussed in this case report. (Archives of Neuropsychiatry 2010; 47: 169-70)
