Epidemiological surveillance of mumps by a network of general practitioners


, : Epidemiological surveillance of mumps by a network of general practitioners. Archives Belges de Medecine Sociale Hygiene Medecine du Travail et Medecine Legale 43(9-10): 420-430

During one year, 100 G.P.s, geographically distributed over 27 districts of the country, have recorded their cases of mumps. On the basis of these data we were able to estimate the annual number of cases for the entire country at 73,850, which means 72 cases per 10,000 inhabitants per year. The incidence rate is very high until the age of 9 years, at 465 per 10,000. For all age groups taken together, the incidence is higher in males. A complication is found in 5.4% of mumps cases. 1.6 cases of meningitis have been recorded for every 100 cases of mumps, and 16.3 cases of orchitis for every 100 males who had mumps at age 15 years or more. Generally speaking the number of complications is 3 times higher in males than in females.
