The European PANDAS Lake Como Conference 2015

The 2015 European PANDAS Lake Como Conference will be held on September 26 & 27, 2015 in Como, Italy at the Università dell’Insubria. REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN.

PANDAS è un acronimo che identifica alcuni disordini neuropsichiatrici infantili secondari ad un infezione da streptococco B emolitico di gruppo A, lo stesso germe che un tempo con maggiore frequenza era responsabile della "Nefrite post-Streptococcica". Sembra che i disturbi psichici in questo tipo di infezioni sarebbero causati dagli anticorpi generati dall'organismo per difesa immunitaria, che agiscono sui gangli della base, causando invece disturbi comportamentali.

Program / CME

Presentations of the latest scientific advances in the diagnosis and treament of PANS/PANDAS shall include topics touching immunology, rheumatology, neurology, child psychiatry, psychology and more.  CME will be available within two weeks of the conference.
