Abstract

A pigmented lesion of the oral mucosa that bears histologic resemblance to the cutaneous melanoacanthoma is discussed. A study of 22 cases, including 4 in the current series, shows that the intraoral lesion occurs most commonly in adult black women on the buccal mucosa and lip. The lesion is known to regress. The term melanoacanthosis is suggested for this condition.
