ABSTRACT
Melanocytic neuroectodermal tumor of infancy is a relatively rare pigmented neoplasm that primarily affects the maxilla of infants. Pigmentation depends upon the amount of melanocytic element present. We report a case of melanocytic neuroectodermal tumor in a three month-old child with a greater extent of neuroblastic differentiation.
