• Fullness developed in the left side of a 5-month-old male infant's face in the region of the zygoma. An incisional biopsy specimen showed the mass to be a melanotic neuroectodermal tumor, and radical excision was performed. There has been no recurrence of the tumor one year later. Tumors of this type occur in the face, particularly in the maxilla. and have only rarely been reported around the orbit.
