Abstract
A 49-year-old female presented an acute pancreatitis caused by infection with mumps virus. The clinical context including the absence of the usual causes of acute pancreatitis and the appearance of the parotidis, oriented more specifically towards the mumps virus.
Acute pancreatitis was diagnosticated by the increase of lipase and by enlargement of the pancreas seen on abdominal computed tomography. Mumps-specific antibodies confirmed mumps infection serologically. The abdominal symptoms were disappeared spontaneously after a conservation management with analgesia, hydration and fasting and the swelling of the right parotid decreased too.
Mumps infection in adulthood is rare, and acute pancreatitis is an exceptional complication of mumps virus. However, this diagnosis have to be considered in patients presenting with acute pancreatitis without evidence of another usual cases.
