Title: Increased incidence of mumps in the Czech Republic in the years 2011 and 2012

Abstract: A nation-wide vaccination against mumps that had been launched in the Czech Republic in 1987 eliminated great outbreaks (up to 100,000 cases per year) of this disease in 1955–1988, but did not prevent small outbreaks (a few thousand cases per year) in 1995–1996, 2005–2007, and 2010–2012. The extent of these small outbreaks shows an increasing trend. The article describes mumps outbreaks in the Czech Republic in 2011 and 2012 with the aim to bring additional data contributing to the clarification of repeated outbreak triggers. In the years 2011 and 2012 there have been reported 2885 and 3902 mumps cases, respectively, in the Czech Republic. Similarly to other countries, a shift in the age-specific incidence of the disease towards higher age has been found, with the highest occurrence seen in the age group of 15–19 years. Men were slightly more affected than women. Clinical complications and vaccination status of patients were also observed.
