Pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorder (PANDAS) results when strep antibodies attack the brain, specifically the basal ganglia, which is responsible for movement and behavior. When the antibodies interact with this area of the brain, it can cause obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) symptoms. For more information see savingsammy.net.
