Abstract

We report a case of Mumps deafness with acute vestibular symptoms in a 13-year-old boy, who developed both parotid swelling preceded by acute right hearing loss and vertigo with spontaneous nystagmus. He was diagnosed as Mumps when the antibody of Mumps virus was detected in the serum. To our knowledge, this is the first case of Mumps infection, where parotitis was preceded by hearing loss and vertigo. This study indicates that the first symptom of Mumps virus infection could be hearing loss or vertigo.
