|8.9 AU/mL or less||Negative - No significant level of detectable IgG mumps virus antibody.|
|9.0-10.9 AU/mL||Equivocal - Repeat testing in 10-14 days may be helpful.|
|11.0 AU/mL or greater||Positive - IgG antibody to mumps virus detected, which may indicate a current or past mumps virus infection.|
The detection of antibodies to mumps virus in CSF may indicate central nervous system infection. However, consideration must be given to possible contamination by blood or transfer of serum antibodies across the blood-brain barrier.
