Structure and strains
Mumps is a viral disease caused by the mumps virus. Initial symptoms of mumps are non-specific and include fever, headache, malaise, muscle pain, and loss of appetite. These symptoms are usually followed by painful swelling of the parotid glands, called parotitis, which is the most common symptom of a mumps infection. Symptoms typically occur 16 to 18 days after exposure to the virus and resolve within two weeks. About one third of infections are asymptomatic.
Mumps Viruses belong to the family of paramyxoviridae and occur globally with humans being their only natural host. The pathogens are spread by droplet infection.

The clinical picture of mumps is very variable. Up to 40% of infections remain asymptomatic or present with mild symptoms. Fever in combination with uni- or bilateral painful swelling of the salivary glands (parotitis) is the most typical presentation. Additionally, respiratory manifestations may be apparent. Childhood infections are mainly uncomplicated, but in adulthood a range of complications may occur. In 25% of infected postpubertal patients organ manifestations such as orchitis or epididymitis, also pancreatitis, oophoritis, meningitis and encephalitis may occur. Late sequelae such as sterility as a consequence of testicular atrophy or deafness due to acoustic neuritis rarely occur. Pregnant women are especially exposed to the risk of abortion, but there is no risk of congenital malformation.
Detection and diagnosis
Demonstration of IgM antibodies is commonly used as evidence for an acute infection and provides positive test results early on with the onset of symptoms. The demonstration of IgG antibodies serves primarily for immune status and vaccination control as well as for confirmation of Mumps Virus infections. The detection of IgG antibodies in CSF samples is p
