Abstract

Melanotic neuroectodermal tumor of infancy is a rare osteolytic-pigmented neoplasm that primarily affects the maxilla of newborn infants. Two cases of melanotic neuroectodermal tumor of infancy were presented to the department of oral and maxillofacial pathology in Sulaimani Dental College, 2015. Clinical assessment and histologic diagnosis of the classic findings supported the final diagnosis, and no recurrence was detected after one year follow up.
