ABSTRACT: A case of Melanotic Neuroectodermal Tumor of Infancy, presenting as tumor arising from the maxilla in a 5-month old baby, is presented. On exploration, the characteristic melanotic pigmentation in the tumor tissue, which was confirmed by histopathological examination of the resected specimen, clinched the diagnosis. The rarity of the condition is highlighted and the relevant literature reviewed.
