I am a final year PhD student studying the molecular biology of mumps virus. As part of my final written thesis I would like to include an historical aside to mumps virus and the disease. In particular I would like to know how different societies have named the same set of characteristic symptoms: swollen salivary glands and testis. (Of course there are others, such as meningitis and many infections are asymptotic but lets not be confusing.)
For this I need diverse and global input from as many people as possible. So if you have a name in mind, add it to this spreadsheet.
I have filled it in with a couple of known names to me.
|Mumps - characteristic unilateral salivary gland swelling. What do you know this as?|
