Melanotic neuroectodermal tumor of infancy (MNTI) is a rare tumor which commonly involves the mandible, maxilla and calvarium. We report two infants with this rare tumor. T1 shortening due to melanin content has been rarely described in MNTI. The calvarial MNTI showed T1 shortening which was helpful in diagnosis.
