Noma Disease

Mali. Noma, Derived From The Greek Word "Nomein", Meaning "To Devour", Is Also Called "Cancrum Oris". Noma Is A Disorder That Causes Sudden, Rapidly Progressive Tissue Destruction. The Mucous Membranes Of The Mouth Become Inflamed And Develop Ulcers. The Infection Spreads From The Mucous Membranes To The Skin And The Tissues In The Lips And Cheeks Die. Rapid, Painless Tissue Breakdown Continues And This Gangrenous Process Can Destroy The Soft Tissue And Bone, Causing Disfiguration With Its Associated Physical, Psychological, And Social Consequences. This Disorder Occurs Primarily In Young, Severely Malnourished Children 2 5 Years Of Age. It Is Seen In Areas Of Poor Cleanliness And Sanitation. Today, Noma Is Curable. If Detected Early, Treatment Is Simple And Inexpensive And Can Be Easily Administered To Arrest Its Progression And Prevent The Disfiguration Of Victims. (Photo By BSIP/UIG Via Getty Images)
