This article briefly reminds the readers of the huge importance of Hippocrates observation about the epidemic of mumps in Thasos during the fifth century BC. By putting great emphasis on the value of observation of the disease process, mainly from the practical point of view, the Corpus Hippocraticum gave us the first written detailed description of the disease.

Paediatric Virology in the Hippocratic Corpus

A systematic analysis of the Hippocratic Corpus is provided, with particular focus on viral infections predominating in neonates and children, and Hippocrates' systematic approach and methodical innovations can inspire paediatric trainees and future Paediatric Virology subspecialists.

Epidemiological Characteristics of Mumps Outbreak in the South Districts of Babylon province During the Years 2016-2017

Mumps occurs more among males and the frequency of this viral disease is high during January, the role of vaccination was limited in protection of patients against this disease, third booster dose of mumps vaccine is recommended after serological monitoring to evaluate the levels of antibodies to prevent.

Mumps and Other Types of Viral Parotitis

This chapter reviews the clinical and laboratory features of mumps as well as other viral etiologies of parotitis, including influenza virus, adenovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, parainfluenza virus, and enterovirus.

Protective effect of vaccination against mumps complications, Czech Republic, 2007–2012

This study demonstrates a significant preventive effect of two-dose vaccination against mumps complications (orchitis, meningitis, or encephalitis) and hospitalization for mumps.

Investigating the role of intrinsic conformational disorder in mumps virus proteins

How disordered regions of N and P are implicated in the regulation of the complex machinery of viral replication is explained, using the nuclear magnetic resonance which is the most powerful method to determine structure, dynamics and potential interaction partners, and therefore, function of disordered viral proteins.
