Why is PANDAS/PANS on the Rise?

About this Event

In this webinar Dr Masson will present a common cause of a sudden change in behaviour in children, often associated with anxiety, tics and OCD behaviours: PANS.

Paediatric Acute Neuro-psychiatric Syndrome is caused by brain inflammation from a misguided immune response after an infection. Children with PANS are often misdiagnosed as having psychiatric illness, and may spend months or years in closed psychiatric wards, instead of being given the appropriate immune treatment which often resolves all symptoms within a few weeks.

The average lag from first PANS symptoms to accurate diagnosis is 2-3 years. Dr Masson’s aim is to increase awareness of PANS to reduce the unnecessary suffering of these children and speed up diagnosis and treatment.

She will cover PANS diagnosis, assessment and treatment through case studies to give you the tools to recognise children with these symptoms and treat them effectively.
