from the results that you have written above shows more of a bacterial picture compared to viral picture as mumps is a viral infection,
a person can get mumps despite being vaccinated in childhood only that the disease strength is weaker then those people who havent been vaccinated in childhold
from my view i dont think your son has mumps, and mumps is more of a clinical diagnosis then a lab diagnosis.
hope have answered your query
