This case concerns bilateral parotitis apparently caused by increased intraoral pressure generated by sneezing and forceful clearing of the nares during an attack of hay fever. This was accompanied by painful anterior cervical lymphadenopathy. The condition responded well to an oral cephalosporin and increased fluid intake along with an analgesic agent. The patient recovered without sequelae.
