Abstract

Melanotic neuroectodermal tumor of infancy (MNTI) is a rare but well‐documented lesion of neuroectodermal derivation. Maturation of the neural elements has been reported only occasionally. We report a case of MNTI of the maxilla showing maturation of neural elements to ganglionic cells. © Wiley‐Liss, Inc.
