Abstract

Mumps is a disease caused by a virus that usually spreads through saliva and can infect many parts of the body, especially the parotid salivary glands. Miscellaneous complications of the mumps are already known. Although mild leucopenia and rarely mild thrombocytopenia are normally reported with mumps, they are not the causes of pancytopenia. In this report a 14-year old-girl suffering from mumps who got pancytopenia and then persistent leucopenia is presented.
