Guido CA, Zicari AM, Duse M, Spalice A. Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) treatment associated with parent management training (PMT) for the acute symptoms in a patient with PANDAS syndrome: a case report. Ital J Pediatr. 2019 Jun 26;45(1):74. doi: 10.1186/s13052-019-0667-1. PMID: 31242942; PMCID: PMC6595549.
Conclusions: Following eight sessions of EMDR, preceded by training sessions with the parents, the child showed a significant reduction in symptoms and disappearance of the exacerbation. These results indicate the possibility of improving the treatment outcomes of patients with PANDAS by a combined approach using both antibiotic and EMDR therapies.
