Complications of mumps requiring hospitalization in children.

UNLABELLED: During the years 1987-1988, an outbreak of mumps was reported among the paediatric population in Israel. Mumps immunization in Israel was not universal at that time and most of the population had not been immunized. During that period, 66 children with evidence of recent mumps parotitis with several complications, i.e. meningo-encephalitis, cerebellar ataxia, arthritis, orchitis, transverse myelitis, deafness and presternal oedema were treated in our department. All patients had recovered completely except one who had permanent hearing loss.

CONCLUSION: This paper provides a reminder that mumps, while basically benign, has complications serious enough to lead to hospitalization without immunization.
