Theresa, I have not heard of it since childhood but it was nasty.   As I 
remember our gums were swellen and there was risk of losing your teeth.  We were 
always warned to not touch drinking fountains as that was possibly where we got 
it.   I did a search and found Mayo has an article on it which states it was 
prevalent with WW 1 soldiers.   Now, I was not around at that time!!   WW2, 
It is also known as Vincent's stomatitis & acute necrotizing ulcerative 
gingivitis.   We never, never went to the dr so you can guess what a big deal it 
was to have the dr visit us at home and for all four of us to have it.   I'm 
sure it was a huge financial burden for my parents who struggled so just to 
provide our basic needs.
