Abstract


While the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) commonly presents with respiratory symptoms, there has been a rise in the number of atypical manifestations with the unfolding of the pandemic. Acute parotitis is one such atypical manifestation associated with CO- VID-19. It is important that physicians familiarize themselves with these atypical symptoms in order to prevent infection and disease transmission. It is important that COVID-19 be considered in the differential of parotitis and other virus-causing syndromes, as well as emphasize on the importance of personal protection during initial examination.
