  • Workup should include a thorough history and physical exam to determine if the clinical course could be consistent with AE.[aealliance.org]


  • The third and longest section, Assessment and Treatment,starts with clinical assessment, diagnostic evaluation, and comprehensive treatment planning, and goes on to cover the evidence-based analysis of drug treatments for the major disorders.[books.google.de]
  • IVIG (intravenous immunoglobulin) infusion therapy is one of several treatment options for PANDAS/PANS, but in some cases, antibiotics and steroids alone may be sufficient treatment.[chicagotribune.com]
  • Treatment Treatment is supportive and may include restriction of dietary protein, sodium, and fluid and, in more severe cases, treatment of edema and hypertension . Dialysis is occasionally necessary.[merckmanuals.com]
  • Despite the impact of this illness, treatment options for IBS have limited success, with a significant unmet need. Lack of understanding of underlying pathophysiological mechanisms has hampered development of effective treatment.[clinicaltrials.gov]


  • […] acute stage the MRI signal changes (mainly MRI T2 hyperintensities) observed in these disorders are mainly due to the development of vasogenic edema they commonly have an acute onset and a regressive course they commonly have a benign course with good prognosis[radiopaedia.org]

  • Prognosis and response to steroids were generally good, except for some patient subgroups. In patients with PNS involvement and steroid failure, a favorable effect of IV immunoglobulin was observed.[neurology.org]
  • Finally, while spontaneous recovery within few weeks is still the rule in children affected by the typical PSGN, the prognosis in immunodeficient adults is often severe and the response to treatment is uncommon.[oxfordmedicine.com]

  • Etiology Postinfectious glomerulonephritis (PIGN), a nephritic syndrome , is the most common cause of a glomerular disorder in children between 5 and 15 yr; it is rare in children 2 yr and uncommon in adults 40 yr.[merckmanuals.com]
  • Another possible etiology might be a postinfectious phenomenon, in which the viral infection leads to a delayed immune response and for which laboratory evidence of the involved pathogen might be lacking at the time of weakness onset (9).[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
  • Studies evaluating the etiological mechanisms behind postnorovirus-associated GERD and dyspepsia are needed.[cid.oxfordjournals.org]
  • Stool studies to look for possible bacterial, viral or parasitic etiologies. X-ray studies are not routinely performed but may be useful in some circumstances to evaluate the liver and gastrointestinal tract if other causes are suspected.[patients.gi.org]

  • In addition, the researchers want to determine pathophysiological mechanisms leading to the development of this disorder.[clinicaltrials.gov]
  • Although the pathophysiological mechanisms involved in PI- IBS are currently unknown, it is believed that a transitory inflammation leads to subtle but permanent changes in the structure and function of the digestive system that induce symptoms.[journals.lww.com]
