Background : Mumps vaccine has not yet been included in the routine vaccination programme, for this reason mumps is still one of the most common infections for children in Turkey. One of the major complication of mumps is meningoencephalitis, which although usually heals spontaneously, it may cause neurologic complications. 
Mumps-associated meningitis and encephalitis in patients with no suspected mumps infection.
Molecular Epidemiological Evaluation of the Recent Resurgence in Mumps Virus Infections in Ireland
TLDR
It was observed that younger individuals were disproportionately affected with neurological sequelae following mumps virus infection, and the average age of patients with mump virus RNA detected in cerebrospinal fluid was 19.25 years.
Seroepidemiology of the recent mumps virus outbreaks in Ireland.
Seroprevalence of Measles , Rubella , Mumps and Varicella Specific Antibodies in Primary School Children
TLDR
There is an urgent need for a planned program with different strategies to prevent and control these diseases, particularly measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella.
Influence of Ribavirin on Mumps Virus Population Diversity
TLDR
The aim of this study was to examine the ability of ribavirin, a broad-spectrum antiviral agent, to introduce mutations in the mumps virus (MuV) genome and to investigate if resistance develops during long-term in vitro exposure to Ribavirin.
Epidemiology and etiology of acute encephalitis syndrome in North India.
TLDR
JEV and DV are the chief causative agents of AES in North India, although other viruses should also be considered in a differential diagnosis.
Kabakulak Enfeksiyonu, Meningoensefalit ve Tourette Sendromu
TLDR
qTourette Syndrome after Mumps Meningoencephalitis: A Case Reportq is important since it is the second case reported in this country and responses to aripiprazole therapy is important, as central nervous involvement and its complications are highly frequent during the mumps infection.
Sensitivity and specificity of immunoglobulin G titer for the diagnosis of mumps virus in infected patients depending on vaccination status
TLDR
Although IgM detection against mumps is highly specific, its sensitivity is very low in immunized subjects, and in this group, the titration of IgG could serve as an additional diagnostic tool.

TLDR
Serum amylase concentration was found to be elevated in the presence of parotitis and generally normal in primary mumps meningoencephalitis.

TLDR

Central nervous system mumps A review of 64 cases
TLDR
Follow-up neurological, psychometric, and audiometric performance tests on 19 patients revealed no significant differences between the patients and a group of matched controls, although one of those with meningoencephalitis had suggestive evidence of minimal brain damage.

TLDR
Cerebrospinal fluids from 18 of 40 patients yielded mumps virus by inoculation of rhesus monkey kidney cultures; 33 subjects, including 12 of the 18 virus excretors, showed rising or elevated levels of mumps antihemagglutinin during convalescence.

Mumps meningoencephalitis, with special reference to the use of complement-fixation test in diagnosis.
TLDR
The early serologic diagnosis appears possible in about two thirds of cases of mumps meningoencephalitis without preceding or concurrent salivary gland involvement, and the anti-S > anti-V pattern occurs most frequently when the meningitis is not preceded by salivaries and when the serum is obtained before the end of the first week of illness.
Neurological Complications of Mumps
TLDR
The value of pertussis immunization is emphasized, as is the grave danger of further inoculations when a previous one has produced any suggestion of a neurological reaction.
