AROSTEGUI, S.; AGUERO, J.A.  and  ESCAR, C.. PANDAS following amygdalectomy. Anales Sis San Navarra [online]. 2003, vol.26, n.2, pp.287-290. ISSN 1137-6627.

PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections) is the denomination for the disorder shown by a subgroup of patients with obsessive symptoms and/or tics that appear in relation to infections by group A beta-hemolytic streptococci.  The clinical case that we present corresponds to a girl of 5 years who developed a compulsive-obsessive disorder in temporal relation to an amygdalectomy. This patient fulfilled the diagnostic criteria and the longitudinal evolution corresponding to this type of disorder.

Keywords : PANDAS; Obsessive-compulsive disorder; Amygdalectomy.
