PANDAS also known as Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Streptococcal infection is rarely seen in those over the age of 12. PANDAS may occur when a child suddenly has OCD or tic-related symptoms following a strep infection. The symptoms appear to happen extremely sudden and may cause the child to become obsessive, compulsive, edgy, moody, irritated or anxious. Like all disorders mentioned, a professional must diagnose PANDAS.
