Abstract

Mumps should be included in the differential diagnosis of a comatose patient, particularly when mumps is prevalent in the community. Mumps encephalitis sometimes occurs with normal CSF cell count and protein content. Some exanthems associated with mumps may represent dual infections. That mumps virus alone may produce a rash is suggested by a report cited and by one patient in this series.
