Trench Mouth (Acute Membranous Gingivitis) (Vincent Angina)

Dr. KennedyTrench mouth (aka Acute Membranous Gingivitis) is a progressive painful infection with ulceration, swelling and sloughing off of dead tissue from the mouth and throat due to the spread of infection from the gums. Certain germs (including fusiform bacteria and spirochetes) have been thought to be involved, but the full story behind this long- known disease is still not clear.
