Mission Statement

We created our Stanford PANS program in 2012 in order to build a comprehensive program with the goal to orchestrate groundbreaking research while providing tailored care for patients and their families.


Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (PANS), Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated w/ Streptococcal Infections (PANDAS), or Sydenham's chorea (with psychiatric symptoms) present a sudden, seemingly inexplicable change in children, and we understand that getting accurate diagnosis, proper treatment and family support can make a profound difference for both the child’s health and the entire family’s well-being. Our goal is to provide outstanding care based on groundbreaking research, and to tailor care to your child’s unique combination of symptoms and your family’s personal needs.
