Abstract

When dealing with a mumps infection, the complication of meningoencephalitis is quite rare. A 24-year-old soldier with a past MMR vaccination was admitted because of aseptic meningitis. His cognitive functioning was rapidly deteriorating with the swelling of both parotid glands. MR findings revealed discrete lesions in the brainstem and thalamus. He barely recovered within 2 months. Among adults with a failure to get the immunity despite vaccination, institutional crowding can lead to a fatal CNS complication such as mumps meningoencephalitis.
