We observed clinically 27 cases of meningitis among 201 cases of mumps who visited to the pediatric department of Seoul Red Cross Hospital for 4 years from January 1962 to December 1965. The disease is characterized by commonly occuring in the male and later childhood (school children). There are many variable reports from central nervous system invasion of the mumps virus. due to systemic infection and the variabilities are probably due to concern of the different observations against the invasion of C.N.S. from systemic infection of the mumps virus. Our 27 cases were identified only by the clinical syndrome but if we have had more careful examination of the other mild cases we would have more meningitis. We were interested in a few cases; 2 cases exhibited meningitis 2 or 3 days prior to parotid gland swelling, one case was an 7 year-old boy who has had a poliomyelitis one year previously, and one case was active pulmonary Tbc. with chemotherapy. According to these last cases (2 cases) it suggested that the mumps meningoencephalomyelitis is more apt to be developed in the preexisting CNS lesions. In our cases, the rate of mumps meningomyelitis was paralleled to the mumps developed.
