Oral pigmentation occurs in Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, Addison’s disease, melanocytic nevi and fixed drug eruption. We report a case of oral pigmentation; biopsy revealed focal melanosis which was confirmed by Fontana – Masson stain. The present series in a family with oral pigmentation suggests autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance. It is imperative to exclude all other causes of oral pigmentation before diagnosing familial oral pigmentation.
