We wish to bring attention to the importance of PANDAS in pediatric patients, as it can have a detrimental impact on their academic and social development. The scarcity of PANDAS cases in Pakistan may be attributed due to lack of awareness and interdisciplinary communication. Enhanced cross-referral between pediatricians and psychiatrists can help alleviate the morbidity and disability associated with this condition. This case highlights the need to recognize atypical PANDAS presentations that exhibit unique neurological and gastrointestinal symptoms. A multidisciplinary approach is crucial for accurate diagnosis and effective management in these intricate cases.
