Introduction

Mumps is a contagious viral infection that primarily affects the salivary glands, causing swelling and pain. It is caused by the mumps virus and is most commonly seen in children and young adults. The aim of this guide is to provide a comprehensive overview of the symptoms, causes, diagnostic steps, possible interventions, and patient education related to mumps.

Codes

– ICPC-2 Code: D71 Mumps
– ICD-10 Code: B26 Mumps

Symptoms

  • Swollen and tender salivary glands (parotid glands)
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Muscle aches
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite

Causes

  • Mumps virus
  • Spread through respiratory droplets (coughing, sneezing, talking)
  • Close contact with an infected person

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Gather information about recent exposure to individuals with mumps
  • Assess for symptoms such as swollen salivary glands, fever, headache, and muscle aches
  • Determine if the patient has received the mumps vaccine

Physical Examination

  • Palpate the parotid glands to assess for swelling and tenderness
  • Check for other signs of infection, such as fever and enlarged lymph nodes

Laboratory Tests

  • Mumps IgM antibody test: Detects the presence of IgM antibodies specific to the mumps virus, indicating a recent infection
  • Mumps PCR test: Detects the genetic material of the mumps virus in a sample, confirming the diagnosis

Diagnostic Imaging

  • Generally not necessary for diagnosing mumps
  • Imaging may be used if complications, such as orchitis or meningitis, are suspected

Other Tests

  • Blood tests: May be done to assess white blood cell count and rule out other possible causes of symptoms
  • Lumbar puncture: If meningitis is suspected, a sample of cerebrospinal fluid may be collected for analysis

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Advise the patient to rest and drink plenty of fluids
  • Educate the patient about the contagious nature of mumps and the importance of isolation to prevent spreading the infection
  • Provide information on managing symptoms, such as using over-the-counter pain relievers and applying warm or cold compresses to swollen glands
