A mumps case at Miami University has been confirmed by the Miami University Student Health Services.
The confirmation, in an email from health services sent to the campus community Friday evening, identifies the patient only as a female student on the Oxford campus. No other details have been released.
On April 22, Clark County health officials reported two possible cases of mumps -- one suspected and one probable case. At that time, county Health Commissioner Charles Patterson said the first probable case was an Ohio State University student from Clark County and the suspected case is an adult female who lives in the county and had no affiliation with the university.
The Clark County Combined Health District wasn't alerted of the first case in time to confirm it with lab tests and the patient was no longer contagious. The county was awaiting lab results to confirm the illness in the second case.
Reports of confirmed cases of mumps began at OSU's campus in Columbus in February.
In mid-April, public health officials said the mumps outbreak in central Ohio had grown to 212 reported cases of the contagious viral illness, with 132 of those linked to OSU. That number included 96 students and 13 staff members.
The central Ohio cases spanned from early January to late during the week of April 7.
Mumps is a contagious, infectious viral disease with symptoms that include swelling of salivary glands.
