Two UCLA pediatricians discuss strep-triggered OCD (PANDAS) in the Chicago Sun Times.  The discussion resulted in response to a parent questioning why PANDAS wasn’t brought up in the original article about OCD.  It is disappointing that an infection is usually overlooked as the root cause of any mental health ailment.  But it is encouraging that these doctors did acknowledge the legitimacy of the disorder.  Parents are so often dismissed by doctors for asking them to pursue the possibility of PANDAS.  Parents are accused of Medical Child Abuse and face child protective investigations simply for advocating for their children’s health.  Child Abuse Pediatricians are making a big push to target mothers of medically complex children, including those with PANDAS.  My newest book exposes the truth about this disturbing trend.
