Abstract

Over a 19-month period, five rhesus monkeys developed oral lesions of gingival erosion and bone denudation with sequestration. One other rhesus monkey developed facial necrosis which communicated with the oral cavity. These lesions were consistent with those seen in the disease called noma (cancrum oris) in humans.
