Join us on Zoom for a free one-hour seminar with Dr Tim Ubhi, who will be talking to us about PANS and PANDAS.

PANS is the acronym for Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome, a more recently defined disorder which encompasses the more familiar medical condition, PANDAS or Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Streptococcal infections. PANDAS is now considered a subset of the broader classification, PANS.

A growing number of children and adolescents are believed to unknowingly suffer from PANS or PANDAS – treatable neuropsychiatric conditions that are characterized by a sudden onset of obsessive-compulsive behaviours (OCD), motor and/or vocal tics, anorexia and other neuropsychiatric presentations.

Streptococcal infections are associated with PANDAS whereas other infections, including Lyme disease, can be associated in PANS. Dr Ubhi will give an overview of both conditions.

Dr Tim Ubhi is a NHS Consultant Paediatrician with a special interest in PANS PANDAS. He was a founding member of the UK PANS PANDAS Physicians Network and is also a member of the Scientific & Medical Advisory Board for the European Neuro-Immunopsychiatric Association. Dr Ubhi is also Clinical Director for The Children’s e-Hospital, an innovative online child health service.
