Mumps has re‐emerged as an infection in the developed world. Its epidemiology has changed, with the majority of cases now primarily affecting adolescents and adults. While mumps is easily suspected if parotitis is present, parotitis is absent in 10%–30% of symptomatic cases. Mumps is a systemic infection with a variety of extra‐parotid complications. In Australia, mumps diagnosis is confirmed by antibody testing and reverse transcriptase‐polymerase chain reaction techniques. Suitable specimens… Expand
The increasing incidence of mumps orchitis: a comprehensive review
TLDR
The epidemiology, clinical presentation, diagnostic methods, treatment options and complications of mump orchitis, as a complication of mumps virus, are reviewed, with particular emphasis on testicular atrophy, subfertility and infertility. Expand
Mumps Virus: Modification of the Identify-Isolate-Inform Tool for Frontline Healthcare Providers
TLDR
The “Identify-Isolate-Inform” tool is applicable to regions with rare incidences or local outbreaks, especially seen in college students, as well as globally in areas where vaccination is less common, to assist frontline healthcare providers with detecting potential cases and initiating critical actions. Expand
A case of mumps orchitis and pancreatitis in 25 years old man hospitalized in Clinic of infectious diseases - Varna
TLDR
Multi-organ involvement in the clinical course of mumps, taking its with is usual manifestation of the disease, and in this case, the patient recovered without lasting sequels. Expand
Mumps presenting as epididymo-orchitis among young travellers: under-recognition, missed diagnoses and transmission risks.
TLDR
A series of cases is used to highlight the diagnostic allenges, risk factors and public health implications of mps orchitis, and to illustrate the infection risks for under-vaccinated adults travelling to mumps-endemic countries. Expand
Seroepidemiology of the recent mumps virus outbreaks in Ireland.
TLDR
The consistent and significant increase of mumps infection in the ≥30 years old age group which is also evident in the periods between outbreaks suggests that this may be the cohort maintaining the mumps virus in circulation. Expand
Mumps vaccine associated orchitis: Evidence supporting a potential immune-mediated mechanism.
TLDR
Three cases of orchitis following vaccination with mumps-measles-rubella (MMR) vaccine are reported, two with an onset within 3 days following vaccination, highlighting uncertainty regarding the pathogenesis of post-vaccineOrchitis. Expand
Application of Oral Fluid Assays in Support of Mumps, Rubella and Varicella Control Programs
TLDR
The main application of oral fluid testing is in those circumstances where blood sampling is deemed not necessary, or is undesirable, and when the documented sensitivity and specificity of the oral fluid assay methodology to be used is considered sufficient for the purpose intended. Expand
umps vaccine associated orchitis : Evidence supporting a potential mmune-mediated mechanism
We report 3 cases of orchitis following vaccination with mumps–measles–rubella (MMR) vaccine, two with an onset within 3 days following vaccination. Orchitis is a common complication of mumpsExpand
A mumps model with seasonality in China
TLDR
The analysis shows that vaccination rate and invalid vaccination rate play important roles in the spread of mumps, and suggests to increase the vaccine coverage and make two doses of MMR (Measles, mumps and rubella vaccine) vaccine freely available in China. Expand
Incidence of Mumps in Hilla City
TLDR
It is shown that among patients presented to private clinic and Al Hillah general teaching hospital with symptoms and signs of mumps and its complications, history taken, clinical examination, treatment and follow-up done, and incidence of Mumps in Hilla City in 2020 was high. Expand

Mumps
TLDR
Routine vaccination has proven highly effective in reducing the incidence of mumps, and is presently used by most developed countries; however, there have been outbreaks of disease in vaccinated populations. Expand
Pancreatitis complicating adult immunisation with a combined mumps measles rubella vaccine. A case report and literature review.
TLDR
Temporal separation of pancreatitis onset from vaccination raises the possibility that pancreatitis as a complication of mumps vaccination is under reported and the Urabe strain of attenuated mumps virus appears to be disproportionately represented. Expand
Symptomatic mumps virus reinfections
TLDR
The presumed mumps‐reinfected patients were different from primary infected ones and presented features reminiscent of a secondary immune response, suggesting the not uncommon occurrence of symptomatic reinfections by the mumps virus. Expand
Analysis of Mumps Vaccine Failure by Means of Avidity Testing for Mumps Virus-Specific Immunoglobulin G
TLDR
The results showed that secondary mumps vaccine failure occurs not infrequently, even among school age children under condition in which the vaccine coverage is low (i.e., 33% in the study population), and therefore, vaccinees are prone to be exposed to wild-type viruses. Expand
Mumps virus neutralizing antibodies do not protect against reinfection with a heterologous mumps virus genotype.
TLDR
The findings in the present study may offer an explanation of a mechanism behind previously observed vaccine failures and the occurrence of reinfection with heterologous mumps virus strains. Expand
Mumps and the UK epidemic 2005
TLDR
The basis of the current epidemic is explained, the epidemiology, clinical presentation, complications, laboratory confirmation, and treatment of mumps are reviewed, and evidence based information on the internet is searched for. Expand
Comparison of mumps-IgM ELISAs in acute infection.
TLDR
The Microimmune mumps-IgM ELISA had the best overall sensitivity in acute serum specimens and Diagnostic laboratories should be developing the means to perform direct detection of mumps virus for acute presentation and requesting convalescent bloods, if acute blood samples have no detectable IgM. Expand
The effectiveness of the mumps component of the MMR vaccine: a case control study.
TLDR
A case control study to assess the effectiveness of the mumps component of the MMR vaccine found that two doses of vaccine were more effective than a single dose, and the current two-dose vaccination programme remains the best method for controlling mumps infection in the community. Expand
Systemic treatment with interferon-alpha 2B: an effective method to prevent sterility after bilateral mumps orchitis.
TLDR
Systemic treatment with interferon-alpha 2B appears to be highly effective in preventing sterility and testicular atrophy after bilateral mumps orchitis, and larger populations should be performed to establish the present promising results. Expand
Measles, mumps and rubella – the urologist's perspective
TLDR
The article reviews the pathophysiology, clinical symptoms, diagnosis, and long‐term sequelae of this increasingly prevalent condition and provides a reference for all practising Urologists treating this disease. Expand
