Mumps Virus IgG
A postiive result indicates that the patient has antibody to mumps virus. It does not differentiate between an active or past infection. The clinical diagnosis must be interpreted in conjuctions with clinical signs and symptoms of the patient.

Mumps Virus IgM
<1:20 Antibody not detected

The presence of IgM antibody to mumps typically indicates recent or current mumps infection; however, false positive results may occur due to antibody cross reactivie to parainfluenza virus.
