Melanotic neuroectodermal tumor of infancy (MNTI) is an extremely rare, benign neoplasm of neural crest origin composed of relatively primitive pigment-producing cells. It usually affects new born or infants of <1 year of age, generally involving the face or cranium. This case report describes a 4-month-old child with MNTI involving the anterior region of maxilla. A partial maxillectomy was performed on the left side of maxilla and the patient is now under follow-up.
