Antibodies which arise in response to group A beta-haemolytic streptococcus GABAS infection cross react with epitopes on neurons within the basal correa, frontal cortex and other regions.

The PANDAS pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections syndrome is similar, but is not characterized by Sydenham’s motor dysfunction. A search in NLM Gateway http: This is relevant in the context of rheumatic heart disease.

The study design comprised nine case reports, wydenham retrospective, five observational, three comparative and one randomized, double-blind study. This constellation of features results in difficulty in the execution of activities of daily living with the result that the condition impacts negatively on the quality of life of children. Despite some progress in understanding the pathogenesis and pathophysiology, the treatment remains largely symptomatic and not evidence based.

The efficacy of this agent would be based on its role as a dopamine D2 receptor blocker [ Edgar, ]. The former comprise involuntary choreatic movements, voluntary movement incoordination, muscular weakness and hypotonia [ Gowers, ]. J Exp Med These observations suggest a role for oestrogen in SC expression.


A minimum of National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. There was little consistency regarding time of chorea symptoms prior to treatment, details of adverse events, specification of outcome measurement tools, protocols for discontinuation of medication and documentation of recurrent chorea. Sydenham’s chorea is characterized by the abrupt onset sometimes within a few hours of neurologic symptoms, classically aydenhamusually affecting all four limbs.

The variable natural history of both severity and time to resolution make it difficult to draw meaningful conclusions as spontaneous resolution may occur [ Garvey and Asbahr, ].
