Neuroectodermal Tumor, Melanotic
The melanotic neuro-ectodermal tumour of infancy is an uncommon benign tumour of neural crest origin occurring in infants with a predilection for the anterior maxilla. This lesion shows a good response to conservative surgical excision with few recurrences but it should be followed up for long periods of time because of the rare malignant change possible in the tumour.
