Mumps Virus Antibody (IgG)
- Ordering Info
A positive result indicates that the patient has antibody to mumps virus. It does not differentiate between an active or past infection. The clinical diagnosis must be interpreted in conjunction with clinical signs and symptoms of the patient.
Mumps is an acute, usually self-limited systemic illness characterized by parotidites, high fever and fatigue. One third of infections are asymptomatic. A live attenuated vaccine is available. The mumps EIA IgG antibody test is sufficiently sensitive to establish immune status of the patient.
