Oral melanoacanthoma is a rare, pigmented lesion which brings suspicion of a malignancy with its sudden appearance and rapid growth. It is characterized clinically as a brown-black lesion and histologically it shows acanthosis of the superficial epithelium and proliferation of dendritic melanocytes. Due to their unusual clinical pattern, biopsy is mandatory to rule out malignancy.
