Girl that sneezes 12,000 times per day

I saw the most interesting article today on  There is a girl that has had a mystery ailment and been in the news.  I have loosely been keeping track of it because it is just kind of interesting.  

It turns out that she has received a diagnosis and I am sure that knowing what is going on will be a big relief for her and her family.  She has PANDAS--the same pediatric neurological disorder that my DS13 has.  His just doesn't make him sneeze, it gives him 2-3 months of OCD thoughts every winter when strep antibodies build up in his system and attack part of his brain.

Isn't it amazing how the same process can manifest differently in different children?
