This 2011 map represents a sample of parents self reporting PANDAS cases across the continental United States. PANDAS is across the globe, but for this map, we will only reference the United States.
The East Coast reports more cases of Pandas — perhaps due to greater awareness of Pandas? Strep serotype? Population Density?
The cases have not been substantiated by a recognized medical study. They do meet PANDAS criteriaas set out by Dr. Sue Swedo. This map does not include the broader category of PANS since it was created in 2011, prior to the release of the PANS White Paper.
