Definition of Mumps:

An acute infectious disease, caused by a paramyxovirus, and most common in children.  Although it usually infects the parotid glands, and is often only a mild condition, it can spread to the testes or ovaries and cause serious problems, particularly when contracted by unresistant adults.  A mild child's infection that is not properly monitored holds the potential for pancreatic or meningeal complications.
