The recent valuable reports of Zelman1 and Applebaum2 on serum amylase in mumps appeared while we were engaged in carrying on studies of mumps and its complications. We became particularly interested in testing whether or not elevated serum amylase values could be of assistance in aiding in the diagnosis of orchitis and epididymitis due to mumps when there was no history or evidence of parotitis.3 The additional problem of attempting to determine the effect of mumps on serum lipase presented itself, for if, as some investigators4, 5 believe, the serum amylase elevation noted in mumps is due to a silent
