We have reviewed the recorded cases of the combination of uveitis and parotitis, either with or without the presence of nerve palsies or skin eruptions, and have found that about sixty-five such cases have been reported. Five such reports appeared in the American literature and the rest were described in the journals of foreign countries, particularly the Scandinavian. The rarity of the subject justifies the report of an additional case as well as the attempt to describe and discuss briefly the course and manifestations of such an entity. We have noted also that the majority of these cases have been reported by ophthalmologists in their special journals; but, since this type of case is often encountered by the internist, a discussion of the syndrome from the medical clinician's point of view is warranted.
