Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We present a case of Cancrum Oris, also known as Noma, in a child treated by an Otorhinolaryngologist at a United States-led Joint Forces hospital in Afghanistan. Noma is a deadly, necrotizing infection of the face that is rarely seen in wealthy nations but can cause significant morbidity in third world countries. Through a literature review, we report the incidence, risk factors, clinical features, and proposed treatment for this disease.
