PANS (Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome)
PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal infection).
Problems with mood, behavior and neurological functioning in children can be caused by untreated infections that trigger an autoimmune response. Often, these changes occur with a “sudden onset” of symptoms, although it is also possible that the symptoms become more apparent over time.
There are few doctors in the Netherlands (or in Europe) currently diagnosing and treating PANS/ PANDAS patients. NovioMedic’s interest in complex illnesses, combined with the clinic’s ability to offer specialized testing and treatments, has resulted in parents seeking advice and services from our clinic for their children who suffer from PANS/PANDAS.
