Abstract

Melanotic neuroectodermal tumor of infancy is a rare neoplasm that affects children under the age of one year. The tumor generally occurs in the head and neck area, with the maxillary alveolar crest being the most frequent site of involvement. MNETI manifests as a pigmented expansile mass with an aggressive growth pattern and a high recurrence rate. The rarity of this condition contributes to the absence of robust evidence-based therapeutic techniques. We describe MNETI in a 2.5-monthold baby who had a maxillary lesion that was treated with debulking.
