Description In connection with our earlier correspondence on the epidemiologic significance of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19)-related oral manifestations, it has been evident that larger observational studies following rigorous reporting guidelines are inevitable for better understanding of the ongoing pandemic from oral disease perspective (Riad, Klugar, & Krsek, 2020). Hereby, we describe, according to the STROBE guidelines, a series of 15 confirmed COVID-19 cases with acute parotitis symptoms that were highly attributed to the direct infection of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) (Von Elm et al., 2007).
