Busabong Noola, MD


Iodide mumps, a swelling of the salivary glands after a contrast medium injection, is a rare adverse reaction. This article considered a case of a 57-year-old male with a history of renal cell carcinoma who developed progressive swelling of the bilateral submandibular glands several hours after a intravenous (IV) contrast enhanced computed tomography (CT) imaging study was conducted during a routine tumour surveillance. After supportive medical treatment, the swelling of the glands gradually regressed and returned to normal within a few days.
