Anesthesia mumps, an acute, short-lived, enlargement of the parotid gland occurs after general anesthesia. It is also known as “Acute post-operative sialadenitis”. Its occurrence is rare and may be a source of concern for the health care team and patients. In most cases it involves the gland unilaterally. Bilateral occurrence is rare. It has also been known to occur in rare instances following regional anesthesia [1]. Anesthesia mumps is not particular to any surgical procedure. It has no distinct etiology, but several speculations have been made.
