Acute transient parotid gland enlargement in association with general anesthesia is a rare complication and has also been called anesthesia mumps. Unilateral or bilateral parotid or submandibular swelling usually develops during surgery under anesthesia or, a few hours later and usually resolves in a few days with no sequelae. It has been reported as a complication after general anesthesia in patients undergoing spinal surgeries in prone and lateral decubitus position, even after cesarean section in the supine position and also reported in Intensive Care Unit patients. We present a case of a unilateral parotid swelling noticed in immediate postoperative course, in a patient who underwent spine surgery.
