The study was conducted to analyze the epidemiological characteristics of mumps in China (Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan excluded) from 2004 to 2006 and to provide basic data for mumps control.


Descriptive epidemiological analysis was conducted based on the data of epidemic parotitis from National Notifiable Disease Reporting System and mumps virus surveillance database from Nation Measles Lab.


The annual incidence rates of parotitis cases during 2004-2006 were 17.45/100, 000, 22.40 /100, 000, 20.76 /100, 000 respectively. All the provinces had parotitis cases report. In all parotitis cases during 2004-2006, the percentage of case number of children (< 15 years old) were 89.77%, 87.87%, 85.15% respectively, while the children between 5-9 years old were 49. 16%, 46.90%, 43.26% respectively. The homology based on 316 nucleotides of the Chinese mumps virus isolated during 2004 - 2006 was 95.4%-100%.


To prevent and control mumps, the mumps surveillance for serology, virology and eoidemiology should be strengthened in China.
