Melanotic Neuro-ecto-dermal tumor of infancy- 2 cases of a rare tumor.
Pak J Surg Jan ;37(3):225-7.
Two cases of melanotic neuro-ecto-dermal tumor of infancy (MNTI), involving maxilla presented at 4 and 6 month of age with increasing intra-oral mass interfering with feeding and bleeding from that mass. Patients were pale and had firm to hard non-tender immobile swelling involving maxillary alveolus. Biopsy and immuno-histochemistry were suggestive of MNTI and surgical excision with 5mm safe margins was carried out. Both infants had uneventful recovery and were started on oral feed and were discharged.
