Mumps meningitis has been reported in 1%-10%, mumps pancreatitis in 4%, and mumps oophoritis in 5% of persons with mumps (3,25,26).
Bilateral CMV oophoritis is a rare pathological finding associated with a systemic infection.
Initially, an explanation of the predilection of CMV oophoritis towards the postmenopausal age was that the obstruction of blood flow secondary to age-related restrictive vascular changes were seen in postmenopausal women and was a critical factor for localising the infection to ovary, thus allowing progression of the disease.
They suggested that the inflammatory response and secondary vasculitis also perpetuates the vascular restriction, and fibrin microthrombosis may have been a contributing factor in CMV oophoritis in pre- and postmenopausal women.
