Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The etiopathogenesis of oral pigmentation is diverse. One such process is the oral melanoacanthoma, a reactive, melanocytic lesion, infrequently found in the pediatric subpopulation. To extend the knowledge of this lesion, we provide a case of gingival melanoacanthoma in a 17-year-old male patient. In addition, a comprehensive differential diagnosis for gingival hyperpigmentations in young patients is detailed.
