We report a case of hyperacute bilateral parotitis, where the patient developed bilateral parotid swelling within minutes, following administration of low-osmolar iodinated contrast agent. The condition, often called “iodide mumps” usually has a late onset ranging from hours to days. Recognition of early onset of the condition is important to avoid unnecessary investigations as the condition usually follows a benign course.
