Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The incidence of mumps cases has declined dramatically since the introduction of the measles, mumps, rubella vaccine. A recent outbreak, however, brings to attention the importance of recognizing the clinical symptoms and signs of mumps, because early isolation of patients may prevent spread of the disease. The authors present the case of a 50-year-old man with severe encephalitis found to be caused by the mumps virus.
