PANS - A case for antibiotic therapy?

A PANS Case Study, Immune Treatment Reduced Psychiatric Symptoms
(Robert M. Post)
"Pediatric acute neuropsychiatric syndrome (PANS) is a little-known syndrome in which a child has an acute onset of psychiatric symptoms following a bacterial or viral infection, when the antibodies generated to fight the infection instead attack neurons in the brain. The behavioral alterations can be severe and resistant to the usual psychotropic drug treatments. PANS often requires antibiotics and immune-targeted therapies."
"Mycoplasma pneumonia, influenza, Epstein Barr virus, and Borrelia burgdorferi (Lyme disease) are often involved."
