PANDAS was initially proposed as a disease entity in the mid-1990’s by Dr. Swedo to describe children who developed the sudden onset of obsessive compulsive disorder and/or tics in temporal correlation with “strep throat” infection. Over time, it has become clear that the PANDAS model is too restrictive and it has been reformulated as Pediatric Acute Neuropsychiatric Syndrome. The author will discuss three children with ASD who experienced sudden and severe functional regression. Tami Giles will present her son's personal story.
