    The aim of the study was to review the management of cancrum oris. The objective of the study was to determine the reason for cancrum oris and to assess the methods by which management can be done. Noma is an opportunistic infectious disease that mainly strikes children below the age of 5. A combination of different factors leads to its development, poverty being most important. The disease occurs in deprived and undernourished individuals with poor hygiene. Hence, this review is to explore in detail the reasons for the occurrence of cancrum oris and the ways by which we can prevent them and to ensure a long term success of its management.
