This image depicts the anterior neck of a young child, which displayed the characteristic cervical swelling due to enlargement of the submaxillary salivary glands brought on by a mumps infection. Mumps is a contagious disease that is caused by the mumps virus. The illness typically starts with a few days of fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, and loss of appetite, and is followed by swelling of salivary glands. Anyone, who is not immune from either previous mumps infection, or from vaccination, can become infected.
