We will do a database search to identify children less than 1 year of age that have undergone inguinal hernia surgery during the years of 1999-2007, and children who have had inguinal hernia surgery between the ages of 1 and 3 years during the years 1999-2007.
We will then do a telephone interview of the parents of these children to determine if there are siblings that are within three years of age and have not have any exposure to anesthetics agents or sedatives before their 3rd birthday.
- The primary endpoint of this feasibility study is to determine if there is an adequate population of sibling pairs at CHOP to warrant participation in a future PANDAS study. [ Time Frame: 6-9 months ]
